Bournemouth: Manchester United’s Interest in David Brooks is a worrying sign

Are we about to see a player exodus on the south coast at Bournemouth?

Maybe, because according to The Sun, Manchester United are eyeing up Daniel James’ Wales team-mate David Brooks in a potential £50m deal.

This follows the constant speculation surrounding Ryan Fraser’s future at the club while the same outlet also reported earlier this month that Tottenham are interested in Nathan Ake.

Factor in the attention Callum Wilson has attracted, too, and the Cherries could be in real danger here.

If they do not stand their ground this summer, they risk potentially becoming the new Southampton.

Since winning promotion to the Premier League back in 2012, the Saints have boasted some excellent players. The likes of Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Luke Shaw, to name a few, all come to mind.

However, they were all eventually cherry-picked by Liverpool and the rest of the Premier League elite, leaving Southampton battling for safety over the last couple of seasons.

That could easily be Bournemouth if they sell Brooks and co and fail to adequately replace them, though supporters will have faith in Eddie Howe regardless of what happens.

Having signed a new long-term deal back in March, Bournemouth are in a real position of strength here when it comes to Brooks.

Still, you cannot help but feel worried about the Cherries with all of this speculation surrounding their key players. As they say, there is no smoke without fire.
