Tottenham chase £40m Brooks but he was available for £11.5m last summer

Tottenham are reportedly ready to launch a £40m bid for David Brooks.

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are keen on Bournemouth midfielder David Brooks, according to The Sun.

Bournemouth want to hand Brooks a new deal to ward off interest from the Premier League big boys and are prepared to double his salary to around £50k-per-week.

Brooks only joined Bournemouth last summer from Sheffield United but he has been a revelation.

The Wales international has scored five goals and picked up two assists in 21 Premier League matches for the Cherries.

This has unsurprisingly alerted Tottenham, who see him as a long-term option to improve their squad.

 

But Spurs were also interested in Brooks last summer. Ahead of the 2018 summer transfer window, Tottenham had been monitoring Brooks and were readying a move, according to The Sun.

The report claims that Tottenham were intent on turning the Welsh starlet into the new Harry Kane.

Instead, though, Brooks moved to Bournemouth for just £11.5m, as per The Guardian. Just six months later, that already looks like one of the bargains of the summer.

Spurs will be kicking themselves that they missed out on one of the best young British talents around for such a small price.

And this will be especially disappointing considering that they are now prepared to pay £40m for the 21-year-old, according to The Sun.

Tottenham could have saved their pennies and landed a promising starlet if they had pressed ahead with the summer move.
