Boss Mauricio Pochettino was interested in signing him last summer but he joined Bournemouth instead for £11m.

And the former Sheffield United creative midfielder – now an outside bet for the PFA Young Player of the Year – has been in red-hot form on the south coast this season.

He has six goals and four assists in his 22 Premier League appearances, including one of each in the 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea on Wednesday.

As exclusively revealed by SunSport, Brooks is set to be out of action for five weeks after picking up an ankle injury in that stunning win.

It means he missed the defeat at Cardiff yesterday but should be back for the end-of-season run-in.

And if he rediscovers his fine form, he will put the big clubs on alert once again.

The senior Welsh international has nine caps under his belt already and his progress has not escaped Manchester United’s attention.

Although they have not shown the same interest as Spurs in the past, they may well be tempted to make an offer to test Bournemouth’s resolve.

They fought off interest in Callum Wilson to keep hold of the English striker and now face another battle to ensure Brooks stays at the Vitality Stadium.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is known for wanting to strike a good deal but he may be tempted to splash the cash in order to sign the Welshman for two reasons.

Firstly, he knows that it may take a big bid to beat competition from rivals for Brooks’ signature.

Secondly, Levy is determined to keep Poch at the club and will therefore do everything in his power to keep him happy, especially with Manchester United, Real Madrid and now Chelsea reportedly after him.

And providing him with the cash to make signings may well help convince the Argentine to stay.
