SPURS are “preparing a £50million summer bid” for Cherries star David Brooks, according to the Mirror.

The publication claims the Wales international “was also on Tottenham's radar last summer” before he was snapped up by Cherries from Sheffield United.

The north London outfit are hoping to “head off interest from other clubs including Manchester United” who “could make their own summer bid” according to the tabloid.

Brooks, 21, is set to miss a month of action after picking up an ankle injury in Wednesday’s 4-0 victory over Chelsea.

The £10m man has been in terrific form this season, scoring six goals and providing four assists in 22 Premier League appearances.

The Warrington-born star had addressed speculation over his future after being linked with Tottenham and Manchester United last month.

Brooks told the Daily Echo: “I signed a four-year contract with Bournemouth and that’s all I’m thinking about, as well as training hard, putting in performances and trying to help the team do as well as possible.

“Speculation is nothing – it’s for the newspapers and things like that.

“It’s different if a bid comes in (for a player) but this is all rumours and is nothing to do with me.”
