Tottenham are eyeing up a potential hijack of Bournemouth’ swoop for United’s young attacker David Brooks this summer, according to the Sun reporter Alan Nixon.

The journalist claims on his personal Twitter account that the Lilywhites are keeping up a close eye on the 20-year-old forward after he was a revelation for the Blades last season and featured heavily on the best betting sites, making 33 appearances, primarily a substitute, scoring three goals and chipping in with six assists.

The Sun have reported that Bournemouth have tabled a £12million bid for the youngster, who can play in an attacking midfield or centre forward role, but that Spurs could scupper their plans by joining the battle for his capture.

Good move for Tottenham?

It seems as though Spurs are in the market for an attacking midfielder this summer, with reports linking them with the likes of James Maddison and Jack Grealish, so it should as come as no surprise that Brooks is on their shortlist.

Brooks has not had the same success that the former pair have had in England’s second tier but that £12million price tag is still a hefty price for a youngster who had just nine starts in the Championship last season.

Mauricio should not be desperately seeking a new attacking midfielder with such quality options at his disposal, and Brooks may not be at the level to take them to the next level.

Likely to happen?

It appears as though Tottenham will have to overcome Bournemouth if they want to get a deal done for the young talent, and they are probably not that desperate to take him to north London.

Still, if the Cherries fall in their hunt, then Spurs could pounce and secure a half-decent deal for the midfield starlet.
