Canada international Jonathan David is the leading goalscorer in the French Ligue 1 this season. The striker has beenin very good form for Lille in the French top flight since the start of the season. The Canada senior national team star has been in sensational form for French champions Lille since he signed for the club from Belgian team Gent at the start of last season.


21-year-old David won the League title with Lille in his first season at the club. He scored 13 times to help Lille finish ahead of favourites Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the French top flight last season. In total, David has scored 25 times in 56 league games for Lille.

For this season, David has 12 goals in 15 starts and four substitute appearances in the French top flight thereby finding the back of the net more than any other player in the competition. AS Monaco striker Wissem Ben Yedder is the nearest challenger to Canada striker David in the race to win the Golden Boot Award in the French Ligue 1 this season. Ben Yedder has ten goals in 13 starts and six substitute appearances in the league this term.

Mbappe has nine goals in 16 starts and one substitute appearance, while Ajorque has nine goals in 17 starts and one substitute appearance.
