West Ham United have got themselves into a bidding war with Tottenham Hotspurs, Newcastle United and Leeds United for talented Bournemouth attacking midfielder David Brooks, according to Wales online.
Bournemouth is among the three clubs relegated back to the Sky Bet Championship, putting an end to their five year stay in the top-flight, and they sure boast of footballers who play beautiful and entertaining football. Due to their relegation, they’d be poached by a whole lot of clubs in other to sign their top players like David Brooks, Callum Wilson, Josh King, Nathan And and co.
The Cherries as they are being called are of the opinion that they can get as much as £40m for the Welshman, who joined the team for £11.5m from Sheffield United in 2018 while he was still in the Sky Bet Championship.
The club’s relegation back to the Championship has seen interest in Brooks soar with the likes of Tottenham, Newcastle United, Leicester, and Crystal Palace all lining up as suitors for the 23-year-old.
He missed the major parts of the English Premier league season due to injuries, but Brooks’ value is seemingly still high following his return to fitness during ‘Project Restart’.
In his debut season as a Premier League player, he found the back of the net seven times and turned provider on five occasions.
It’s also reported that newly promoted premier league side Leeds United are monitoring the situation concerning the transfer tussle for David Brooks.
The youngster is not just a club level player, he has also done well in the colours of Wales racking up 12 appearances. David is a kind of player that’s direct with his running and has eye for a killer pass and also an eye for goal. These qualities makes him a desirable prospect for teams looking forward to refurbish their attacking line.
With his price tag pegged at £40 million, some of Brooks suitors might leave due to the price been out of reach for them.
Hammers gaffer David Moyes has clearly stated that he’s keen on improving his attacking options. Brooks’ record of him while he’s fit would definitely be one to look out for because he’s going to add quality to squad at the London Stadium. The Welshman has the quality to play in the English Premier League and should West Ham United not bring up the cash, their top-flight rivals would.
