Liverpool and Spurs are apparently set to go head-to-head in the race to sign 20-year-old Sheffield United ace David Brooks.
It’s being said that there are a number of clubs interested in the midfielder, however the two Premier League giants are ahead of them all in the race to sign Brooks, which was reported by the Mirror.
The news outlet also report that the player’s performance in the Welsh national team’s friendly against Panama has encouraged Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp’s side to make a move for the player.
Since his arrival Bramall Lane from non-league side Halifax Town two seasons ago, Brooks has shown his full potential so far.
In 21 appearances in all competitions for Chris Wilder’s side, the 20-year-old has managed to score one and assist five, a record that shouldn’t be sniffed at considering the player’s serious lack of experience.
The player can be deployed anywhere through the middle of the park, with Brooks often being used as an attacking midfielder or a support striker for Wilder’s side.
Despite his young age, Brooks has still managed to make two appearances for the Wales national team, an impressive feat considering his age.
