The Bournemouth playmaker has had a brilliant debut season in the Premier League, making him a very exciting target for the Magpies.
But surely he is an unrealistic target?
Despite only moving to Bournemouth last summer, the Welsh international has already extended his contract with the Cherries, meaning a move for him would be very expensive.
With the way money has been at St James’ Park, there’s no way we’ll splash out on a British player who will command an over-inflated fee.
Miguel Almiron’s arrival was the first marquee signing under Rafa Benitez, but it is unknown how many more there will be.
For Benitez to stay, he needs reassurances about the finances available. Signing a player like Brooks would certainly make him happy, but it just seems very unlikely.
Fans would love to see us move for the 21-year-old, but most believe he’s far too good to be at Newcastle.
It says a lot that moving from Bournemouth to Newcastle is considered a step down these days…
Fans react to interest in Brooks

Brooks would cost about 30-40m 😂

David Brooks won’t be sold in a million years unless a top 6 offers silly money-which they won’t yet. Imagine McNeil and Fraser in the middle of the park….🤦♂️

Hate to admit it but think we’d struggle to sign Fraser or Brooks. They wouldn’t see us as a big enough step up, if at all. Unless we were willing to pay a lot more in wages, which we all know is a joke.

Laughable that we’d even try for David Brooks. No chance https://t.co/3nGQYgNrqh
