KAA Gent star Jonathan David continues his positive trend. The 20-year-old has seen his market value grow from €20 million to now €25 million in the latest Transfermarkt Belgium market value update.

The Canadian national team star is now the most valuable player to have ever played in the Jupiler Pro League. The striker has underlined his market value by scoring 23 goals and ten assists in 40 competitive games this season.

Eighteen of those goals were scored in the Jupiler Pro League, where David nets every 117 minutes—an impressive rate that has brought him on the radar of several top clubs in Europe.

Most recently, Premier League sides Arsenal and Manchester United were interested in the forward. David's path, however, will likely see him head to Germany next.

"He wants to join the Bundesliga," David's agent Nick Mavromaras said in an interview with the German-based paper Ruhr Nachrichten. Several Bundesliga clubs, including Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, and Borussia Mönchengladbach have been linked with the striker.

In just two years he has already made his mark on the all time Canadian National team's scoring list.
