Blow for West Ham and Tottenham as relegated PL club reportedly want £30m for 23-year-old

According to a report from the Daily Star, West Ham and Tottenham want to sign Bournemouth ace David Brooks. But the Cherries will not sell the talented winger for anything less than £30 million this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will surely want to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

The same can be said of Spurs manager Jose Mourinho at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And Bournemouth ace David Brooks might just be a useful option for West Ham or Tottenham.

Spending £30 million on the 23-year-old might just represent a big risk, however, due to the former Sheffield United man’s recent problems with injury.

Undeniable talent

Brooks played just nine Premier League games for the Cherries this season, having missed seven months of the campaign with a serious ankle injury (Transfermarkt).

The 23-year-old does possess real talent, however. He proved then during the 2018/19 campaign, with seven goals and five assists to his name in 30 Premier League games for Bournemouth (Transfermarkt).

Brooks is quick, technically gifted and has great vision. As well as being able to play on either wing, he can also operate as a number 10.

Considering the current financial climate, however, £30 million just seems like too much money for West Ham Tottenham to splash out on a player who has only recently returned from such a serious injury.

Time will tell, but if Bournemouth do hold out for that fee, it would be no surprise to see Brooks remain on the south coast this summer.
