Bournemouth Ace David Brooks admits he wants to play at the top level leaving the Premier League big guns on alert.
The 21-year old attacking midfielder this week beat Gareth Bale to the Wales Player of the year award as well as picking up the Young Player award following a great season for club and country.
Tottenham and Arsenal have shown their interest in Brooks with a potential £40million move being reported by The Sun.
Earlier this month, the Bournemouth star admitted he is happy at the club after signing a contract extension keeping him with the Cherries until 2022.
But does Brooks want to follow in international teammate Gareth Bale’s footsteps and play at the very top.
He stated: “I want to play at the highest level possible – whether that is abroad or in England. I don’t know what the future holds for myself.
“Obviously the aim is to get up there and whatever opportunities come, I will have to make the decisions then.
“I am not really expecting it and the reason I signed the contract is I am happy at Bournemouth and the way my progression is going.
“I want that to continue and for the focus not to be on anything else. That is why I signed and I am very happy at Bournemouth.”
Before making his name at Bournemouth, Brooks was the main man at Sheffield United who he joined from the Manchester City academy
The City academy graduate spoke about Jadon Sancho and how he is an inspiration for young players trying to make the breakthrough.
He said: “I think Sancho’s path he has taken going to Borussia Dortmund is quite inspiring for any young players who want to go and do it.
“If you don’t make it at one place, it doesn’t mean you are not going to make it at another place.
“Obviously the impact he has made and getting into the England team is a massive achievement.”
