The Bournemouth midfielder has been identified as one of the club’s potential targets as Chris Wilder looks to add more reinforcements in the midfield unit.
As per British media, Sheffield United are preparing mega offer for David Brooks.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.
The Wales international was signed by Bournemouth in July 2018 from Sheffield United for a fee of 11.3 million euros. The 23-year-old has a contract until 2022 with the club.
The midfielder has banged in one goal in 9 matches for Bournemouth this term on all fronts.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Wales.
Brooks has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 12 senior appearances for the Wales national team.
The Wales international is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Bournemouth this summer and the list of suitors in the Wales international continues to grow.
Adding a midfielder remains Sheffield United’s top priority this summer and Wilder will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.
The Wales international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Wilder wants to target in the summer transfer window.
The Blades are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
His arrival would give Sheffield United some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “Sheffield United are interested in signing David Brooks this window. The Blades know Bournemouth are short on cash after relegation and are ready to pounce. And The Sun says Chris Wilder wants to bring Brooks back to Sheffield United in the coming weeks. However, the source claims the Blades would have to pay their highest ever transfer fee to have any chance of securing the playmaker. The Welshman may want to return to the Premier League, as Bournemouth will be playing Championship football in the coming season. The departure of manager Eddie Howe may also convince him that his future is not with the Cherries.”
