I was wondering if Arsenal was considered as too big a jump, so now we have it straight from the horse's mouth. I think incremental steps are best anyways.

David and his agent have made some very astute decisions in shaping his career to date. I am sure his next move will be positive . Can you imagine the teams that turned him down during his training stints with them before Gent signed him! I believe RB Salzburg was one?

That article states Gent rejected a bid in January of over £20 million. 

So it seems that whatever club David moves to will have to be able to afford probably something in the £25-£30 million range. That isn't too many "small" clubs, or even medium sized clubs. I mean, would a club like Lyon even do that? 

Edit: Lyon's highest ever transfer fee paid as £27.5.

"It’s wonderful that we have a top scorer in David, but most of all, we want to keep him. In any case, we won’t let such a player leave for €25m." -Gent's director of football Michel Louwagie 

When Gent says that, they must be confident he is going for much higher. We can start ruling out a bunch of teams as many of you have eluded to.

Ajax set the incoming Eredivisie transfer record when they signed Blind for Man U at €16.5

Benfica set the Liga NOS incoming transfer record when they signed Raul Jimenez for €22

According to transfermarkt the only teams that have spent in this range in Ligue 1 are PSG, Monaco, Marseille. In the Bundesliga, Bayern, Dortmund, Wolfsburg, and RB Leipzig have spent over €25m in the past.

I 100% agree. We're getting to the point where we can not only start ruling out certain teams we can start ruling out certain leagues as well.

I hope the agent stands firm because there are 4 teams in the lower half of the Premier League that have spend £30mill or more on a player (and only 3 that haven't spend more than £20 mill.)

I was looking at his agents, Axia, who are two young Greek (Greek-Canadians) in Montreal I believe. They have Larin, Borges, Shome and Laryea; in terms of transfers, the Belgium connection is strong-ish. They have mostly Canadians and a few Greeks, work with MLS and CPL.

 I am not sure if they were involved from the start with extricating Larin from MLS, which was a complex move that suggests they have some savvy.

They have never done a huge transfer of the kind we are talking about.

Any move they do with David will basically be breakout for them in terms of commissions.

Pretty sure that Larin was with them before he signed MLS. IIRC, Larin was close to signing in Belgium before MLS beefed up their offer.

appears as though he's priced himself out of Ajax.I'm not sure that move would've made much sense anyways.

They just made a big signing for an attacker.

The top 10 most viewed players on transfermarkt are:

1) Gnabry

2) Davies

3) Haaland

4) Messi

5) Ronaldo

6) Braithwaite

7) Lewandoski 

8. David

9) Mertens

10) Alexander-Arnold

Chills - two Canadians in the top 10.  Not sure how that makes me feel.  Having one on the list would be insane, ridiculous and exciting.  Having two on there is just weird and uncomfortable.  Who are we?  What have we become?

I’ve seen it so many times. I won’t get too excited over our potential  - I’ll just get amped up enough - because this is concacaf.

We've never seen anything like David & Davies.

Remember when we had dero, de Guzman, Bernier, Hutchinson and Gerba and we ranted and raved about how good our mid field was? “Best in concacaf” we said. Pfft this is a few notches higher now.

David or Davies on their own are worth more than those entire squads... it's wild.

I was checking them out on sofifa.com (site lists player ratings and tracks their updates in the FIFA video game). Davies FIFA profile was #1 most viewed and I think David's was #3 yesterday. So the FIFA gamer fanatics are paying attention as well.
