Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has included David Brooks on his five-man transfer wishlist for the summer, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.
Spurs are gearing up for their first summer window since the Portuguese’s appointment. The club showed some intent in January by signing Steven Bergwijn, bringing Gedson Fernandes in on loan and turning Giovani Lo Celso’s move into a permanent deal.
The Daily Mirror reports that Mourinho has a number of names on his shopping list. Along with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Spurs reportedly want Timothy Castagne, Kim Min-jae and Callum Wilson.
But the Mirror has suggested that Wilson is not the only Bournemouth player Spurs want, with Brooks also on the radar.
TBR View: Brooks could be inspired addition for Spurs
It has been a disappointing campaign for the Wales international. He only managed nine Premier League appearances largely due to injury. And of course, the Cherries’ season ended in relegation.
But if he can stay fit, he appears to have the potential to be an inspired signing for Mourinho’s men.
He scored seven and contributed five assists during his first year in the top flight. And he is no stranger to Tottenham’s radar.
The Sun reported in April 2019 that Spurs were battling Arsenal for the then-£40 million-rated youngster.
Perhaps Bournemouth will not demand quite as much this summer given his lack of game-time and the fact Eddie Howe’s men are facing up to a season in the Championship.
If that is the case, he could be an extremely exciting addition to Tottenham’s ranks.
