According to Fichajes, the West Midlands club have now joined the race to sign the 24-year-old Canada international striker, who has impressed this season.

The Canada international has scored 24 goals in all competitions and also provided eight assists. There is no doubt that David is one of the most exciting forwards in European football at the moment and it is no surprise that top clubs are interested in him.

Villa are over-reliant on Ollie Watkins and they need more quality. David can share the scoring load with the England international. The opportunity to play in the Premier League is very attractive to the player, and he will also have the opportunity to work with a good coach like Unai Emery.

Jonathan David has attracted interest from Manchester United.

However, signing him will not be easy as Manchester United are also interested in him. It’s no secret that the Red Devils need to bring in another striker to share the goal scoring load with Rasmus Hoylund.

Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world and the opportunity to join them would be attractive to most players. If both clubs make concrete proposals, David may well be tempted by the idea of ​​playing for them rather than Aston Villa.

Having said that, Aston Villa are currently in a better position to qualify for the Champions League, which could give them an advantage in the transfer race if the striker wants to join a Champions League-qualifying club next season.

It will be interesting to see how things develop over the next few weeks. Both clubs need to bring in a quality striker and David will certainly improve their game in the final third.
