    And some news on David and his future status with Gent. Apparently they already turned down a 25 million euro offer for him during the winter transfter window...

    David on the radar of Arsenal, Man United & Co.: “Won’t let such a player leave for €25m”

    Only few players are currently courted by as many clubs as KAA Gent’s Jonathan David. The 20-year-old Canadian, who secured the spot on top of the Belgian goalscorer rankings with a hat-trick against Sint-Truidense VV on Sunday, made the headlines with strong performances this season. The international, who is used as a centre-forward or playmaker, scored 22 and assisted another 10 goals in 37 matches in all competitions so far.

    “Without a doubt: Jonathan is ready for the next step,” his agent Nick Mavromaras therefore thinks. Talking to Het Laatste Nieuws, he adds: “Gent has boosted his career, the club did a lot for him. 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 list of interested clubs is long. Besides Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton, the Belgian newspaper also mentions Porto, Ajax, Inter Milan, Olympique Lyon and Bundesliga sides Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen as clubs that regularly sent scouts to have a look at David’s performances.

    Jonathan David scored in Gent's 1-1 draw with Roma in the Europa League. Unfortunately that result put Gent out of the competition.



    At least Scott Arfields Rangers moved on to the last 16 in the competition by beating Braga over two legs.
