Jenas: Tottenham ideal for Bournemouth winger Brooks

Tottenham hero Jermain Jenas has urged David Brooks to join the club.

Wales international Brooks has emerged as potential top level player in his debut season at Bournemouth.

Reports have linked the 21-year-old with Spurs and Manchester United, and Jenas thinks he could develop immensely under Mauricio Pochettino.

"I think there are a few teams that will want him regardless of how young he is," Jenas told Goal. "Bournemouth will be asking for a lot of money for him.

"He scores great goals and gets assists, but those are the easy things to spot. I love the way he receives the ball, the way he takes the ball in pressurised areas, his technique and his mentality. He has got an excellent temperament.

"He is strong and he can mix it with players who get nasty with him. All these things mix in to create a top player which I think he is growing into, he has all these attributes. Scoring goals and getting assists come naturally to him so he is definitely a contender for Young Player of the Year.

"We're talking huge money for him, I think because he is a good player and they know what he will build into. Dele [Alli] did it, quite smoothly, Raheem [Sterling] did it at Liverpool, and I did it when I went to Newcastle.

"Young players have the ability to be fearless when they go to a top club and play well. David Brooks will hopefully go somewhere like Tottenham; I think that's a perfect fit for him.

"He's also the perfect fit for the club. He would get game time so it would be nice to see him at Tottenham."
