Tottenham Hotspur will have to part with £50million if they wish to sign Bournemouth’s David Brooks before the transfer window closes next month, according to The Sun.

The report claims that Bournemouth, who were relegated to the Championship at the end of last season have informed Leicester City, who are now considered to be in pole position for his signature about their valuation of the Welsh international.

Tottenham and Manchester United are both credited with having an interest in the 23-year-old, with Bournemouth hoping to keep hold of the attacking midfielder to help spearhead their return to the Premier League and are more open to allowing Josh King to depart.

The Daily Star have previously claimed that the Cherries wish to hold on to Brooks despite failing to beat the drop and are said to be in no mood to let him leave on a cut-price deal.

Tottenham are said to have had a long-standing interest in Brooks having been keen to bring him to North London when he was still a Sheffield United player (The Sun).
