According to a report by the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are ‘interested’ in signing Bournemouth winger David Brooks along with four other Premier League suitors as the domestic transfer deadline looms tomorrow afternoon.
Brooks, who has been a head-turning star for the Cherries in recent seasons, could still make a return to the top flight before Friday’s 5pm cutoff, with Manchester United, Liverpool, Leicester, Everton and Spurs all firmly keeping tabs.
Levy eyes swoop for Brooks
Despite landing a plethora of summer signings already, including the sensational return of club icon Gareth Bale, the Mail have now credited Spurs chairman Daniel Levy with ‘interest’ in Brooks.
Could Daniel Levy make this surprise deal happen?
Yes, albeit unlikely
Absolutely no chance
The 23-year-old has already shown his capabilities at Premier League level at a young age, scoring seven goals and assisting five more over 29 Premier League starts during the 2018/19 season (WhoScored).
Brooks was sidelined for most of the subsequent campaign with a serious ankle injury, preventing him from living up to his exploits the season prior.
Transfer Tavern take
Even though the attacker seems to have potential, there are drawbacks to an unlikely last-minute deal, namely due to Bournemouth’s £40m valuation of him. Cherries manager Jason Tindall will also be keen on keeping the winger in order to boost his side’s promotion bid back to the Premier League.
Because of this, despite currently languishing in the second tier, Bournemouth are under no pressure to sell, making this last-minute move potentially unlikely.
Described as ‘wonderful’ and an asset who’ll ‘want to play in the Premier League’ by ex-Lilywhites midfielder Michael Brown (Football Insider), landing Brooks on deadline day could still be a huge ask for Tottenham given his sizeable fee.
Spurs fans, how likely is it that Levy will pull off this late deal? Have your say in the comments section below…
