Ayub Daud (Somali: Ayuub Daauud, Arabic: ايوب داؤود) (born 24 February 1990 in Mogadishu) is a Somali international footballer who plays for Budapest Honvéd FC and the Somalia national team as a forward/attacking midfielder.
Born in Somalia, Daud moved to Cuneo, Italy with his family at the age of five. The son of Daud Hussein, a former member of the Somalia national football team, he joined the Juventus youth sector in 2000 and made his debut with the Primavera (Under-20) squad in the 2007–08 season.
Daud was part of the Juventus squad in the 2009 Torneo di Viareggio, where he was praised as one of the best footballers of the tournament. He also managed to score eight goals, thus being named top scorer for this season's Torneo di Viareggio. On 14 March 2009, he made his first team debut with Juventus, replacing Sebastian Giovinco during the final minutes of a Serie A 4–1 win over. He is considered to be one of the brightest young talents in football and, although still 20, has earned praise from Arsène Wenger and several other coaches. He is being tracked by Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and a host of other clubs.
On 6 August 2009, Daud left Juventus and joined FC Crotone on a loan. However, the youngster endured a difficult time at the southern Italian club, and subsequently returned to Juventus in January of the following year. He was then loaned out to Serie C1 club Lumezzane.
