Tottenham Hotspur need to spend this summer if they are to compete with their rivals in the Premier League.
Obviously reaching the Champions League final is a remarkable feat, however, everyone associated with Spurs will know new recruits are needed to help further strengthen their side and help them go the distance in a number of other competitions.
And, according to a report by The Sun, it appears Mauricio Pochettino’s side could be about to launch a bid for a talented player.
It is claimed that AFC Bournemouth’s David Brooks (and Callum Wilson) is on their radar this summer and it has to be said, he could be a quality addition for Tottenham.
The Wales international has been superb for the Cherries this season in the Premier League and has been instrumental in helping Eddie Howe’s side complete a solid campaign.
The 21-year-old notched up seven goals and five assists in the top-flight, however, what has been more remarkable is the level of his performances and the fact that they are of a consistent level.
With all due respect to Bournemouth, Brooks looks to be a player that is destined to play for one of England’s biggest clubs right now and a move to Tottenham could help him to develop further. He would only need to ask Gareth Bale about what Spurs can do for his career.
Obviously, times are different since the Wales captain was at White Hart Lane (the stadium for starters), but with Pochettino at the helm and the work he has managed to achieve with some of the country’s youngest talents, you would have to feel the Welshman would thrive under his guidance.
Brooks is more than willing to track back and work hard for the team which makes him seem to fit the bill perfectly and make him the type of player Tottenham want on their books.
Whether the reported £40million is enough to convince Bournemouth to part company with the 21-year-old after just a year remains to be seen, but Spurs and Daniel Levy should look to do all they can to bring him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham fans, do you think Brooks would be a quality addition at the club this summer? Let us know your thoughts below!
