Sheffield United midfielder, David Brooks has attracted attention from a host of Premier League sides after impressing for The Blades. Tottenham have been monitoring the youngster’s progress along with Everton and Liverpool ever since the EFL Championship side gained promotion from League One this season.
Brooks has really cemented himself in the starting lineup under Chris Wilder this season with 21 appearances in all competitions. Wilder has expressed his desire to keep the player at the club as he is an integral part of the club’s future.
The 20-year-old is eligible to play for both England and Wales and was called up to the Wales U-20 side for the Toulon Tournament. He instead opted to play for England and won the best player award in that very tournament. But he has declared himself for the Welsh national team making his debut under Chris Coleman in a 2-0 defeat against France on 10th November this year.
David Brooks can appear both in the attacking midfield role and the central midfield positions with a lot of technical ability. With a pair of quick feet under him and a vision to find his teammate up top, Brooks has really developed his game at the Championship level. Standing at 5 feet and 8 inches he is not the biggest physical presence around the central circle but he is not shy to fight for the ball.
Valued at £20m Sheffield will have a hard time to fending off transfer approaches from top English clubs with the player also ambitious with his career goals.
Tottenham are currently in the 5th spot of the points table and are aiming for a top 4 finish by the end of the season. However, they have faced a lot of issues in terms of depth and quality while competing for multiple trophies this season. The midfield position has especially been vulnerable with Moussa Dembele failing to uphold his own standards and registering just 8 appearances this season.
Victor Wanyama has missed out the majority of the season with an injury and still needs a certain amount of time to find his way back into the starting XI.
Harry Winks has been the only option alongside Eric Dier under Mauricio Pochettino with the squad stretched thin at the moment. The talents of David Brooks can be well implemented into the Argentinian’s style of play with the likes of Dele Alli and Harry Kane in front of him.
