Newcastle United Linked With This 10 Time Wales International: Can Benitez Lure Him To The Tyneside?

According to the reports from the Daily Star as cited by Birmingham Live, Newcastle United are interested in signing Bournemouth’s attacking midfielder David Brooks. The 21-year-old has been the mainstay in Eddie Howe’s side this season as he has managed 31 appearances in all competitions.

The midfielder has been in impressive form as he has come up with seven goals and five assists and it is no surprise that a club like Newcastle United are looking to make a move for him. Brooks came through Manchester City’s academy before joining Sheffield United in 2014.

Brooks was signed by the Cherries last summer for £11.5m. After only one season, we feel that Howe got Brooks on a bargain. In the current transfer market, he can easily fetch double that price after his showings in the Premier League.

Brooks has the potential to become the next top Welsh footballer after the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale. At just 21, he already has ten appearances for the national team, and there is no doubt that he would be a massive player for his country in years to come. The midfielder had even represented the England u-20 side but later switched his allegiance to Wales.

What Can Brooks provide at Newcastle?

The Magpies might be safe from a relegation battle, but they are often guilty of playing a conservative brand of football. Someone like Brooks can liven things up in the attacking third as he always looks to get on the ball and tries to influence the play instead of playing safe passes. He consistently ranks high on the stats of key passes and attempts on goal, and a player like him would boost the Toon in the final third.

Chances of Newcastle signing him?

It was only in March this year that Brooks signed an improved contract with the Cherries. That is a testament to how much Eddie Howe rates him, and the impact he has had at the Vitality Stadium as the club offered him a new contract within a year of his signing.

It is clear that the Toon will have to shell out top money to get a talent like Brooks. At the moment, we feel that he might be out of bounds for Benitez as Howe must be valuing him somewhere between the £20-30m mark given his age and potential. The player too might not be tempted to move to the Tyneside outfit as Bournemouth and Newcastle can be considered as clubs who are pretty much at the same level.
