Jenas says Tottenham will be a perfect fit for Premier League starlet


David Brooks has taken the Premier League by storm since arriving at Bournemouth from Sheffield United last summer.

The midfielder has impressed a lot of people with his ability on the ball and proven that he is more than good enough to cope with top-flight football.

The Welsh international has scored six goals and created four others in 22 appearances for the Cherries so far, and has caught the eye of several big clubs.

Former Tottenham midfielder Jermain Jenas has said that he has not just been impressed by the 21-year-old’s attacking qualities but also his mentality.

Speaking to, Jenas said, “I think there are a few teams that will want him regardless of how young he is. Bournemouth will be asking for a lot of money for him.

“He scores great goals and gets assists, but those are the easy things to spot. I love the way he receives the ball, the way he takes the ball in pressurised areas, his technique and his mentality. He has got an excellent temperament.

“He is strong and he can mix it with players who get nasty with him. All these things mix in to create a top player which I think he is growing into, he has all these attributes. Scoring goals and getting assists come naturally to him so he is definitely a contender for Young Player of the Year.”

The pundit also felt that given how well Brooks has performed this season, it would likely take a huge bid to prise him away from Bournemouth.

He also insisted that the Welshman will be a perfect fit for Tottenham as he will get the game time needed for him to continue developing.

He added, “We’re talking huge money for him, I think because he is a good player and they know what he will build into. Dele [Alli] did it, quite smoothly, Raheem [Sterling] did it at Liverpool, and I did it when I went to Newcastle.

“Young players have the ability to be fearless when they go to a top club and play well. David Brooks will hopefully go somewhere like Tottenham; I think that’s a perfect fit for him.

“He’s also the perfect fit for the club. He would get game time so it would be nice to see him at Tottenham.”
