Liverpool would be looking to add more firepower to their ranks in the upcoming transfer window as the Mirror claims that the Reds want to sign young Welsh attacker David Brooks. The 20-year-old has been performing well for Sheffield United in the Championship and a price tag of £20m is being rumoured for the attacker.
The report also claims that Tottenham want to sign the highly rated midfielder and a battle between the two Premier League sides would be on for the signature of this rising star. What is a little concerning at the moment is the fact that we are linked with yet another attacker and not a defender.
Coming back to Brooks, the youngster has only scored one goal all season for the Blades but that did not stop the side from giving him a four-year deal to protect their star in the making. The midfielder also made his full debut against Panama in the recent international break and he did win the man-of-the-match award, which is another great feather in his cap.
This rumour does seem to be a little out of place given that we have a plethora of attacking options in the first-team and in the youth side as well. With Ben Woodburn already waiting in the wings, Rhian Brewster is another player along with Harry Wilson that will be looking to make the step up to the first-team.
Brooks might be a rising talent but he hasn’t done enough to warrant a move to one of the bigger clubs unless he prepares to remain on the bench for a while. We could sign him and send him back on loan but that seems unlikely given the crazy valuation Sheffield have put on the 20-year-old.
For now, we will just have to wait and see what happens to Brooks. Should he go on to have a stellar campaign for his current side and lead them into the playoffs or more, there could be a big battle on hands to sign the attacker. Brooks is a talent for the future and it will be interesting to see just how the story develops in the coming weeks.
