23-year-old Versatile midfielder emerged as surprise transfer target for Liverpool

Liverpool and Man Utd are among five Premier League teams reportedly planning a late move for Bournemouth versatile midfielder David Brooks.

The 23-year-old missed the vast majority of last campaign through injury, being limited to only nine games as the Cherries suffered relegation from the English top-tier.

Brooks has nonetheless been rumoured with a move away from the Vitality Stadium throughout the summer, and top-flight teams still have until 5pm on Friday to finalise a deal before the domestic window shuts down.

The Daily Mail claims that five Premier League club are keeping tabs on the Wales international’s situation.

Man Utd and Liverpool are among the interested teams, while league leaders Everton and  Leicester City are also in the hunt for his services.

The Cherries are bracing themselves for late interest in the midfielder, however, are adamant that he will not be sold for anything less than £40m a fee which could prove problematic for any potential suitors.

Bournemouth have already lost key players such as Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Nathan Ake and Aaron Ramsdale since suffering relegation, while Joshua King has also been strongly linked with a move away before Friday’s deadline.
