Man United are reported to be leading in the race for the signature of David Brooks as they hope to add him to tier books before the end of the summer transfer market.

Manchester Evening News reports that a deal could be sealed in the coming weeks with the 23-year old also keen on a bigger opportunity following an impressive and consistent performance in the topflight for the past two seasons.

Leicester City have also shown interest in the signature of David Brooks but they seem to be abandoning his chase after securing the signature of Cengiz from the Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma to make Man United favourites.

With less than 2-years left to the end of his current contract, Bournemouth could take advantage of that to cash in from his sale as they are now aware that the Red Devils are desperate for new players despite winning their Carabao Cup game on Tuesday night.

Following their defeat in the opening game of the Premier League, Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that his team must do more in the recruitment of players before the summer window ends.

The Red Devils have only been able to add Donny van de Beek to their books this transfer window.
