Leicester City are said to be considering an approach for Bournemouth midfielder, David Brooks, as the Foxes look to beat Manchester United to his signature.
The Leicester Mercury claims that Brendan Rodgers is keen on Brooks, with the player said to be expecting an approach from the club.
Brooks has been linked with a move away from the Cherries this summer. The Daily Star claimed just last month that the likes of Liverpool were considering a £35m bid for the Welshman.
However, it appears now that Leicester is moving ahead of the pack in the race to land Brooks, as Rodgers looks to make the most of the £50m the club received for Ben Chilwell.
He has already signed Timothy Castagne from Atalanta and is now focussed on strengthening his options in attacking areas.
Brooks has recently returned to full fitness following a nightmare 12 months. An ankle injury kept the former Sheffield United man out for the majority of last season before he returned after lockdown.

Whoever wins the race for David Brooks is going to be getting a fine player on their hands with plenty of upside.
He’s a firm favourite of Wales manager, Ryan Giggs, and there’s an argument to be made that Bournemouth may well have stayed up if they’d have had a fully-fit Brooks all season.
Leicester have good players in attacking midfield areas but Brooks offers something different with his left-foot and at just 23, he has time on his side to improve and cement himself as a star for the Foxes.
