Manchester United are eying a deal to sign David Brooks from Bournemouth this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils want to bring in the 21-year-old attacking midfielder as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to add to his squad ahead of next season.

The same story says that Solskjaer is a big fan of the midfielder and has added the Wales international to his transfer wishlist this summer.

According to the same story, Brooks is a boyhood Manchester United supporter, and that could help to make a deal easier to strike.

It is claimed in the same article that Brooks is also wanted by Tottenham Hotspur this summer, despite having only moved to Bournemouth from Sheffield United last summer.

Brooks impressed in his first season in the Premier League, scoring seven goals and making five assists in 30 top flight games for Eddie Howe’s men.

Manchester United confirmed their first signing of the summer last week when they completed a deal to bring Daniel James to Old Trafford from Swansea City.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last season.
