Hammers eye exciting Cherries midfielder

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.

  1. Eze would be great. Another Bournmouth player worth looking at is Lewis Cook – captain of England’s under-21s in 2017. First England player to lift a world cup since Mooro.

  2. Brooks will be a lot more expensive than Eze will, more of an inside right player, as we have Bowen not sure when money is tight whether we can afford that but yes an excellent player with high quality.

  3. They wanted 50m not long ago would this is probably a total non-starter
