CHERRIES are rumoured to have made a £12million bid for Sheffield United attacker David Brooks.

The Sun reported Cherries boss Eddie Howe would give the Welsh international, who has also been linked with Tottenham, “a chance in the top flight”.

Former Manchester City youngster Brooks made his first-team debut for the Blades in August 2016 and scored three goals in 33 appearances last season.

The 20-year-old is contracted at Bramall Lane until 2021 but his deal contains a clause which could tie him down for a further year.

Meanwhile, The Sun speculated that Callum Wilson wanted a £60,000-a-week package to stay at Cherries and was “happy to commit”.

The Dorset club have been linked with West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez but the tabloid stated Howe had “switched his focus” to keeping hold of Wilson as the striker had been “chased by several sides” since returning from a second serious knee injury in October.

In further speculation, The Sun reported Premier League new boys Cardiff City were “keen on” Dan Gosling and were prepared to pay £5m.

Cherries have been linked with an £18m bid for Colombian World Cup star Jefferson Lerma and Howe is “weighing up another move” for the Levante midfielder, according to the tabloid, which suggests Gosling could then become available.

However, The Sun reported Howe “would rather move out” Harry Arter than Gosling.

Arter, who has started just one league game this year, has been linked with relegated Swansea City.

The newspaper added that Cherries’ chances of signing Celtic full-back Kieran Tierney were “fading”.
