Manchester United are interested in signing Bournemouth attacker David Brooks this summer.
The Sun report that United are tracking Brooks, who is a boyhood Man Utd fan.
However, Bournemouth are reluctant to sell their Welsh star and are likely to demand £50m for his services, despite signing the player from Sheffield United last season for just £11.5m, as per the Sun’s report.
Brooks was fantastic last season under manager Eddie Howe, settling into life well in the Premier League. The 21-year-old scored 8 goals and made 5 assists last term (who scored), a good return for a player experiencing his first season in the top flight.
The Welshman, a former Man City trainee, has three years left on his current deal at Bournemouth. Brooks is exactly the sort of signing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be looking at this summer. He is a young, homegrown talent with deceptive pace and eye for a pass. Brooks could compliment fellow Welshman and new signing Dan James in attack if a deal materialises for the Bournemouth midfielder.
Brooks could operate on the left or right hand side of United’s attack, as well as in a number ten role. His versatility would certainly make him a useful addition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season.
