Tottenham Hotspur will surely be looking to sign players come the summer, after going well over a year without bringing in any new faces.
In fact, Spurs became the first Premier League club in history not to sign a single new player over an entire season this campaign.
Despite this, they did sell star midfielder to a Chinese club, leaving a bit of a hole in the centre of the park.
One man who could help fill it, as well as providing competition for the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen, is Bournemouth’s wonderkid David Brooks.
The 21-year-old has six goals and four assists in 22 games this season, and cost Bournemouth just £11.5m in the summer.
It seems logical that one of the big clubs will come in with a significant bid for Brooks in the summer, especially if he wins the Young Player of the Year award.
Ex-Spurs man Jermaine Jenas has urged Brooks to pick Tottenham (Goal): “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.
“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.”
