- The 20-year-old Gent midfielder was linked with the Gunners back in March.
- David is convinced the Premier League would be too much to handle at this stage of his development.
- He believes the German Bundesliga is the perfect place for him right now.
"I never knew big clubs would be interested in me so early," Jonathan David told Sky Sports. "It’s overwhelming, but I think I can make the next step.
"It’s time for me to move and go somewhere where I can keep developing and get to the potential that I have.
"The league that would suit me the most right now is the Bundesliga. It’s similar to the Belgian league in terms of the tempo and the physicality, but obviously the quality is higher in Germany and there is more competition."
The Gunners were linked with the midfielder back in March but, much like David, we are not sure he's what Arsenal need right now. Arsenal have a young and more established Matteo Guendouzi in central midfield and a highly-rated by Mikel Arteta Joe Willock.
If the Gunners are buying a central midfielder this summer, it should be someone experienced and ready to play straight away (like the much-linked Thomas Partey) and not 'one for the future'. We'll see the level Jonathan David is at in a couple of years but he's surely not our main priority in the present.
