And Gunners fans are convinced that this means the 21-year-old Lille star is heading to the Emirates.

An excited supporter wrote on Twitter: “Welcome to Arsenal @JonathanDavid That’s enough for me.”

Meanwhile, another joked, “Is it too early to start monitoring his private plane?”

The Canadian star is set to leave Lille over the summer as her agent revealed this season will be her last in France.

Nick Mavromaras said the Premier League is a ‘good option’ for David, who has scored 15 goals in just 26 appearances this campaign.

Real Madrid are also rumored to be eyeing the youngster, but Arsenal fans are now convinced that he is joining them.

David may be a fan of Gunners legend Henry, but he’s definitely been teasing fans with his choice of clothing.

And with an uncertain future after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped as Arsenal captain, and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Neketia out of contracts in the summer, a new striker is a priority.

A January move is unlikely, although Mavromaras told Radio Canada that he would end the season at Lille.

But after spending more than £150million over the summer, Arsenal have proved they are not afraid to splurge on cash.

So a big money offer in the new year could be difficult for the French side to turn down.

David has earlier expressed his desire to play in England, describing the Premier League as the “best in the world”.

With a big dream of becoming the best striker in world football, David could be stepping on the channel to do just that.
