Newcastle United want to land in-form Bournemouth trickster

David Brooks has been in fantastic form for the Cherries during his first Premier League season.

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez is keen to add Bournemouth star David Brooks to his squad this summer, according to the Daily Star.

The Wales international has had a stunning maiden campaign in the Premier League netting seven goals and claiming five assists.

It seems unlikely that the attacking midfielder will come cheap given that he cost an initial £10 million last summer, according to the Bournemouth Echo.

The tricky performer also only penned a new deal at the Vitality Stadium in March. Eddie Howe won’t be overly keen on selling one of his prized assets with the ink barely dry on Brooks’ fresh contract.

Back in March, it was reported that Benitez’s policy in the transfer market will change this summer if he stays. The Mirror claimed that the Spaniard will be ordered to sign younger players.

 

At 21, Brooks certainly ticks that box. He will also provide significant sell-on value, given the potential he possesses.

TBR Verdict

It wouldn’t be the first time Newcastle have raided the Cherries for recruits. In 2016, the Magpies landed Matt Ritchie who has gone on to play over 100 times for the club.

Brooks’ arrival would hand Newcastle one of the best young Premier League stars around. The ex-Sheffield United man could well play for a top-six club at some point during his career.

Tying him to St James’ Park for a few years could represent solid long-term business for Benitez and Newcastle.
