Man Utd taking close look at Bournemouth winger David Brooks

Manchester United are stepping up interest in Bournemouth winger David Brooks.

The Manchester Evening News says United want three more signings before October 5 and are open to potentially signing a left-back, a centre-back and a centre-forward.

They also are considering alternatives to long-time wing target Jadon Sancho, of Borussia Dortmund.

Brooks of Bournemouth has been 'under consideration by United' for more than a year, but deemed him too expensive last season with the Championship side then valuing him at £50m.

United could also pursue Douglas Costa from Juventus on a one-year loan deal as a stop-gap until next summer.
