Leicester City are reportedly leading the race to sign David Brooks from AFC Bournemouth this summer.

According to MEN journalist, Dominic Booth, the Foxes are leading the chase to sign the highly-rated 23-year-old winger.

Manchester United are also interested in signing him, but they’re still trying to secure a deal for Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

Bournemouth have lost some of their key players this summer following their relegation to the Championship.

Nathan Ake joined Manchester City for a reported fee of £40m last month, and Callum Wilson joined Newcastle United yesterday for a fee of £20m.

Josh King, another bankable asset, has been linked with a move to Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur this summer. And it seems, Brooks could leave the club as well.

Manchester United have considered Brooks as a potential option, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to land Sancho.

Brendan Rodgers is a huge admirer of Brooks and wants to bring him to Leicester this summer. The Leicester boss wants to bolster his attacking options after missing out on a Champions League finish last season, and he is keen to sign the Welshman.

Bournemouth could sell Brooks this summer if their valuation is met. The Cherries are demanding a fee in the region of £35m for the winger.
