West Ham would do well to keep a keen eye on the Bournemouth situation as the transfer window dealings get underway this summer.
For there are three players in the relegated Cherries squad who are already being mentioned as potential targets for various clubs.
And one in particular – David Brooks – a highly skilled Welsh attacking midfielder looks exactly the type of player to take over the Lanzini or Anderson role at the club .
Sky Sports have reported the Hammers have an interest in the 23 year old who looked a real talent when Eddie Howe’s outfit beat Leicester City who are also reportedly interested in the player.
He only managed nine games last season- mainly due to injuries – but showed enough to attract ours and Leicester’s attention along with Newcastle and Palace.
We know Moyes is keen on QPR attacking midfielder Eberechi Eze but Brooks would be a player in the same creative ilk should he fail.
The Cherries may also be ready to receive bids for Callum Wilson or Josh King as Howe builds again for a promotion challenge.
Once again however, and it has to be said, prices will dictate.
