Arsenal and Tottenham target David Brooks admits he wants ‘to play at the highest level possible’


Brooks, 21, has scored six goals and contributed four assists in 25 games for the Cherries this season

Arsenal and Tottenham target David Brooks has put the Premier League big guns on alert after revealing he wants to play at the very top sooner rather than later.

Brooks, 21, has scored six goals and contributed four assists in his first season for Bournemouth in the top flight.

David Brooks’ rise to stardom is a great story

His incredible rise to stardom was further recognised earlier this week when he beat international team-mate and Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale to the Welsh Footballer of the Year gong.

The former Sheffield United sensation also claimed the Young Player trophy last year following a fantastic season for club and country.

His form has caught the eyes of the north London duo with a £40m summer move already being mooted — nine months after Eddie Howe bought him for £11m.

Brooks is content where he is right now, and he signed a contract extension earlier this month on the south coast keeping him at Bournemouth until the summer of 2022.

However, the Welshman is on a mission to play on the biggest stage, opening the door for a potential exit should one of the big guns come calling.

He said: “I want to play at the highest level possible — whether that is abroad or in England. I don’t know what the future holds for myself.

“Obviously the aim is to get up there and whatever opportunities come, I will have to make the decisions then.

“I am not really expecting it and the reason I signed the contract is I am happy at Bournemouth and the way my progression is going.

“I want that to continue and for the focus not to be on anything else.

“That is why I signed and I am very happy at Bournemouth.”
