Tottenham reportedly face competition from David Brooks from Manchester United

David Brooks looks set to be the subject of a transfer tussle.

Tottenham and Manchester United are set for a transfer tussle over Bournemouth winger David Brooks, according to the Sun.

They report that Spurs have been joined in the race for the 21-year-old Welsh international by the Red Devils as they look to strengthen ahead of the new campaign.

The report says that United are willing to pay £50 million for Brooks after his impressive breakthrough campaign at the Vitality Stadium.

And after signing his Welsh international team-mate Daniel James, managed at international level by United legend Ryan Giggs, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men may well hold the cards.

The likelihood is that United will be able to trump Spurs if a bidding war breaks out, given the transfer records of the two clubs in recent seasons.

 

But Mauricio Pochettino has done a fantastic job of blooding young talent during his time at Spurs, and Brooks may well fancy that he would get more opportunity to play at Spurs.

In terms of Brooks being a priority, it could well be argued that Spurs need new players in other positions as opposed to out wide this summer.

Central midfield needs to be the first priority, as well as perhaps a creative playmaker and a new central defender with doubts over the futures of Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld.
