Tottenham interested in Bournemouth winger David Brooks
The 23-year-old started out at the academy of Manchester City, before spending a few years with the Sheffield United youth setup. He joined Bournemouth in 2018 and enjoyed a fine debut spell in the Premier League.
Brooks ended the 2018/19 campaign with seven goals and five assists from 30 league matches. The recently concluded 2019/20 season, though, was a torrid one for the winger, as he spent the majority of the campaign sidelined with an ankle problem, for which he had to undergo two surgeries.
Brooks did make a comeback in the post-lockdown period and looked bright as ever, but couldn’t help Bournemouth survive the drop. He ended the campaign with a solitary goal in nine league outings.
With Bournemouth relegated, they could be forced to sell some of their best players as a cost-cutting measure. And Brooks is someone that is likely to attract a lot of interest, with Tottenham reportedly keeping an eye on the Welshman.
Primarily a right-sided winger, Brooks can play on the opposite flank as well as an auxiliary forward. This versatility would provide manager Jose Mourinho with plenty of options.
The Wales international has already showed that he has what it takes to succeed at this level. He could be an effective alternative for Lucas Moura, who has struggled in front of goal of late.

Brooks is contracted with Bournemouth till the summer of 2022. His potential availability this summer could spark a potential bidding war. So, if Tottenham are genuinely interested in signing the Welshman, the club must act fast.
