This season, recent weeks in particular, Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser have been winning most of the plaudits at Bournemouth — and deservedly so.
But as well as the duo, David Brooks has also come in for a lot of recognition, with the 21-year-old having just been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
And team-mate Chris Mepham is now tipping the midfielder to make it to the very top after an impressive debut campaign at the Vitality Stadium.
“He’s been very good. I speak very highly of David as a player and as a person,” Mepham told the Bournemouth Echo.
“He works hard every day on the training pitch, wants to learn, wants to improve and I think that’s got him to where he is at the minute. If he keeps that attitude, then the sky is the limit and he could play anywhere.”
Up against the likes of Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling for the award, it is hard to see Brooks winning the prestigious accolade.
But with this being the Wales international’s first season in the Premier League, he has done well to get his name in the conversation, regardless.
And if he can maintain the level he is currently playing at, as Mepham suggests, his future is set to be a bright one.
The former Sheffield United man has been directly involved in over 10 Premier League goals for the Cherries this term, showing the sort of productivity in the final third that could attract some serious interest in the future.
Until then, though, Brooks must continue to improve, with Bournemouth being an environment where he can do just that.
