Manchester United are reportedly ready to rival Tottenham Hotspur for the signature of Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks.
The Welsh international has had an impressive first season on the south coast following his move from Sheffield United for what now appears to be a bargain £11.5million transfer fee (Sky Sports).
Brooks scored seven goals and provided five assists during his maiden campaign in England’s top flight which has seen his valuation rise to around £50million after signing a new long-term contract in March with The Sun claiming that the 21-year-old is now on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s radar.
Brooks was linked with a move to Tottenham before he made the switch to Bournemouth which is yet another frustrating oversight from the club’s recruitment team (The Sun) and now face paying a significant amount more if they want to sign the starlet.
However, the lure of Old Trafford may prove to be too much for Brooks who is a boyhood United supporter but can be offered the opportunity to play Champions League football by Tottenham.
Brooks offers the versatility to be able to play in a variety of midfield positions and as a striker which makes him certainly worth considering if Christian Eriksen does depart the club this summer.
