Despite the good season of Paulo Fonseca and his men, the Mastiffs are preparing for a serious interest in Jonathan David. The departure of the latter is expected on the side of the northern club.

To replace its Canadian striker, Lille would like to anticipate. With a priority target that seems to be emerging.

A revelation soon Lille?

Indeed according to the latest information from Fabrizio Romano, Lille would have a concrete interest for Gift Orban, who is currently playing at La Gantoise.

LOSC have recently made contact with the player, who could be Jonathan David’s replacement. The Canadian is said to be on the way out and major offers are expected soon.

This season the Nigerian striker has scored 20 goals and delivered 2 assists in 20 games in all competitions. 6th top scorer in the Belgian championship also scored 5 goals in 6 Conference League games, where the player displayed all his talent in the eyes of Europe. And where he scored the fastest hat-trick in UEFA competition history, in just 3 minutes.

At only 20 years old, the player is one of the great discoveries of this season. He will be one of the players to watch next season, with a departure that seems inevitable.

But Lille will have to face stiff competition, with the Premier League which makes the young Nigerian dream. A few days ago, the La Gantoise striker said that the English championship was his ultimate dream, and that he wanted to go to a club that wins titles.

If LOSC manages to win in this case, the Mastiffs would achieve a great deal on the European scene, with a player with great potential.

Given his talent displayed this season, Gift Orban could make the good days of the club in the coming seasons.

After having recruited Victor Osimhen in Charleroi and Jonathan David precisely in La Gantoise, the Mastiffs could reiterate by making the pass of three, in a Belgian championship which is overflowing with talent.
