Jonathan David - Scouting Report
Login Contact us
A full Canadian international, David has already made 12 appearances for his country, finding the net 11 times so far.

Jonathan David can play all across the forward line, but it’s his play in central positions behind the striker that really makes him stand out. He is not necessarily a creative, slowtempo player like a classic number 10, but he is someone who loves driving forward with the ball from deep positions, using his brute-like physique and exceptional pace to his

advantage. As you can tell by his stats, the Canadian is a brilliant final-third player, whose movement and decision-making moves at 100 miles per hour in the crucial moments.

Plenty of his goals come through late and dangerous runs into the box, which highlights his ability to think on his feet and find space in the final third. Defenders constantly find it difficult to track David’s movement, since he is so direct and unpredictable.

If I was to compare David to a more well-known player, it would likely be to Marcus Rashford, Nabil Fekir, or Heung-Min Son – players who have great physical quality matched with the ability to drive forward with the ball and cut through the opposition with ease, especially on the counter-attack.

From a physical standpoint, David is actually rather suited to Premier League football, even at his young age. Of course, this doesn’t mean he would be a star right away, but he would certainly have less “growing up” to do both physically and mentally than players who come straight out of English academies. His experience in Europe and on the international stage proves that.

Jonathan David’s physical and technical capabilities, matched with his versatility, give him the potential to become one of the most complete forwards in Europe in a few years.
