TOTTENHAM are eyeing an £80million double swoop for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and David Brooks.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has put the pair on his transfer hitlist as he bids to bolster his squad.
He wants England striker Wilson, 27, to cover for and compete with Harry Kane up front.
Poch is also keen on Wales midfielder Brooks, 21, after getting the green light from chairman Daniel Levy to overhaul his squad this summer.
Tottenham have not made a SINGLE signing in the previous two transfer windows.
But Levy is set to loosen the purse strings after Poch guided them to their first Champions League final against Liverpool in Madrid next Saturday.
Wilson joined the Cherries from Coventry five years ago for a bargain £3m.
He fired them to promotion to the Premier League in 2015 and helped them stay there.
Wilson has scored 58 goals in 148 appearances and forced his way into Gareth Southgate’s England squad.
He was linked with a £75m January move to Chelsea — but injuries and loss of form mean Spurs are hopeful of landing him for £40m.
Though they face competition for his signature from Everton.
Brooks had an outstanding season after joining from Sheffield United last summer in a £15m deal and was shortlisted for PFA Young Player of the Year.
The Cherries gave him a new long-term deal in March — but it is thought that was to ensure they get the best price for him.
And Spurs are hoping to tempt the South Coast club to sell with a £40m offer.
