Gifted midfielder announces he ‘is looking to showcase what i can do’ to Chelsea as Premier League move wanted
Long-term Chelsea target David Brooks hopes to use the Euros to remind everyone he still has Premier League quality.
Bournemouth’s Wales midfielder was on the radar of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool before a serious ankle injury two years ago halted his development in the Premier League.
But There were signs that Brooks, 23, was returning to his best last season – and his 15-minute appearance for the Dragons on Saturday added to that. And now he has opened up and admitted that he is hoping to use the Euros to prove that he can still play in the Premier League
He said on the SUN: “I think every player will see it as a chance to impress.
“I’m not going to sit here and disrespect Bournemouth. Obviously, I’m contracted to them. I’m very happy there.
“I’m just looking forward to the Euros to try to showcase what I can do to everyone. However many minutes I get in the Euros, I want to take the opportunity to impress those watching.
“The Euros being pushed back meant I was able to take my recovery at an easy, steady pace.”
A couple of seasons ago we were sure that Brooks would be at a club like Chelsea by now, he really has alot of quality in those young shoulders of his, but that ha snot happened just yet.
He is still very young, so there is still an opportunity for him to make a big move to a club like Chelsea in the coming seasons, but it will depend on if the Blues feel that he is worth making a move for.
