Gent striker Jonathan David already knows where he would want to continue his career. According to a recent interview he had with Sky Sports, David has his eyes set on Bundesliga.

David has been lethal in front of the goal in 2019/20, scoring 23 goals before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus. This caused several European high-profile clubs to express interest in him; something the U.S.-born 20-year-old didn’t expect at this stage of his career.

“I never knew big clubs would be interested in me so early. It’s overwhelming, but I think I can make the next step,” David told Sky Sports. “It’s time for me to move and go somewhere where I can keep developing and get to the potential that I have.“

If he gets to choose, David would prefer a move to Germany as he feels Bundesliga would fit his style of play.

“The league that would suit me the most right now is the Bundesliga.” – he added. “It’s similar to the Belgian league in terms of the tempo and the physicality, but obviously the quality is higher in Germany, and there is more competition.”

Jonathan David spent most of his youth career with Ottawa Internationals, before joining Gent in 2018. David made his debut with the senior team in the same year and went on to score 37 goals in 83 games.

Although born in the United States, David represents Canada on the international level. He made his debut in 2018 and has scored 11 goals in 12 games since then.
