The report claims that Chelsea sent a scout to watch the 20-year-old in action against Roma. Manchester United, Leicester City and Tottenham are the others who have watched him play (h/t Express).

Nick Mavromaras, David’s agent, also spoke about his client moving to a bigger club in the future (h/t Express):

“I understand that they would like to keep him longer, but Jonathan wants to go ahead. The Belgian league is fantastic for young players, but the moment for the next step arrives and this will come in the summer.”

The agent also put off hopes of David joining a top club and said that a move to a mid-table club has to be the option for now.

Liverpool to sign a forward in the summer?

The Reds expected Rhian Brewster to be the next big thing but the youngster is away on loan at Swansea.

Liverpool don’t have proper cover for Roberto Firmino, apart from Divock Origi. However, the Belgian has been played wide quite often.

Takumi Minamino was signed in January, and it will be interesting to see if Jurgen Klopp raids one of the smaller leagues in Europe at the end of the campaign.
