THE Premier League is calling for Jonathan David after the Arsenal and Barcelona target said he would "love" to play in the English top-flight.
Clubs are lining up for the Gent striker, 20, following his impressive form in Belgium.
A strong breakout season last year has been backed up by 23 goals already this campaign as David's side qualified from a tough group to reach the Europa League knockouts.
And while a move isn't on the Canada international's mind just yet, the Premier League is certainly a possibility when he feels a top club can guarantee him a starting role.
He told The Guardian: "I don’t really focus on that or think much about it.
"Right now I’m playing almost every minute of every game and that has really helped me get to the level that I need to be. I just need to take a good step where I can make sure I am getting enough time on the pitch to keep developing.
"I don’t want to go somewhere and just stay on the bench so it’s about taking the right step.
"I want to become one of the best strikers in the world. That’s my goal.
"The Premier League is the best in the world and most competitive so obviously that is somewhere I would love to play in the future."

Ronaldinho is said to be a hero of David's and Mundo Deportivo have talked that up as providing a useful edge for the Catalans.
But the forward, who was born in New York but spent the early years of his life in Haiti, is focused on helping Canada bag an unlikely spot at the World Cup in 2022.
Having moved to the country when he was six, David added: "For all of us the target is the World Cup in 2022, which I think we have a great chance of qualifying for. It would be amazing to play on home soil in 2026 but we know that is in the future."
