Tottenham will have to pay £40m to sign 23-year-old Welshman from Championship outfit

Bournemouth value David Brooks at £40m amid Tottenham interest

According to journalist Alan Nixon of The Sun (h/t Wales Online), EFL Championship outfit Bournemouth will demand a transfer fee of around £40m for winger David Brooks, who is a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

Having been relegated from the Premier League, the Cherries are staring at the prospect of losing some of their best players in the ongoing transfer window. Defensive mainstay Nathan Ake is already believed to be on his way to Manchester City in a £41.5m deal. And it seems like they will hold out for a similar fee for the 23-year-old Brooks.

David Brooks

Brooks hardly featured in 2019/20 due to injury

The Welsh winger joined Bournemouth in 2018 from Sheffield United in a deal worth £11.5m and enjoyed a fine debut campaign at the Vitality Stadium. However, he endured an injury-hit 2019/20 season, only returning to action post lockdown.

However, his exploits in his debut campaign seem to have been enough to attract interest from a host of clubs that include Tottenham, West Ham United and Everton. (h/t Daily Star)

While Spurs do have enough options in the wide areas, Brooks would add more ingenuity to the ranks and would also help boost Jose Mourinho’s options considering that Lucas Moura had a disappointing campaign in terms of goal returns.

In addition, the fact that Brooks can operate as a No. 10 or an auxiliary forward could allow Mourinho some flexibility in terms of tactics in the final third of the pitch. Given his age, he would be a long-term addition to the squad as well.

However, the £40m price tag does seem a little too expensive for a player who hardly featured over the course of the last season.
