West Ham United could finally land a long-term striker target, Jonathan David, but questions linger about the transfer’s fit within the club’s new direction, according to Florian Plettenberg.

David, a Canadian forward, has been linked with West Ham for several transfer windows, both under former manager David Moyes and now current boss Julen Lopetegui.

Despite attracting interest from clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United, David’s surprisingly low price tag of £17 million makes him a potential steal for West Ham.

West Ham supporters seem to welcome the rumour. David boasts a consistent goalscoring record in Ligue 1 with Lille, consistently reaching double digits in goals each season, with an impressive 19 goals last campaign alone. His skillset includes pace, strong link-up play, and a keen eye for goal.

The biggest question mark surrounds whether David aligns with the transfer strategy envisioned by West Ham’s new Director of Football, Tim Steidten.

David was previously a target identified by co-owner David Sullivan, and some doubt Steidten shares the same enthusiasm.

Regardless of past connections, David’s talent is undeniable. Perhaps both Steidten and Sullivan recognise his potential value for the club?

If so, we should definitely go and get him.
