Just over a week remains of the transfer window, and managers will be looking to bolster their squad for the remainder of the season and beyond.
But just how can Cherries boss Eddie Howe improve his options in the forthcoming nine days, and who could be on their way out? We take a look at the latest rumours.
The Bosnian shot-stopper has seen his career somewhat stagnate since his 2015 move to Chelsea, and has featured just 17 times since his move. Having made just four appearances in the EFL and FA Cup this year, the 29-year-old may well be looking to get his career back on track. Bournemouth have struggled defensively this year, shipping 39 goals already. Chelsea have reportedly turned down a £10 million move for the keeper but we may still see more progress with this transfer in the next week.
One of the more obscure rumours of the window, Chelsea legend John Terry had been linked with a move t0 the Vitality. Eddie Howe has quashed the rumours however and said that a move for the ex-England centre back is not on the cards.
The versatile Irish wing-back has apparently been attracting attention from top-flight teams. Burnley are apparently fighting it out with Bournemouth for his signature, with the press suggesting bids have already been placed for Brady. It would seem a strange transfer with the range of left-backs Bournemouth have, especially having signed Brad Smith in the summer.
Having signed the French youngster from Le Havre in the summer, Mousset has struggled to make an impression so far. Having made just two appearances so far Eddie Howe is said to be willing to allow the striker leave on a loan deal in order to get some minutes on the pitch. Howe is apparently refusing to let Mousset leave the Cherries on a permanent basis.
When Grabban rejoined Bournemouth a year ago, a few eyebrows were raised. Having failed to hit the back of the net since his return (16 games), Bournemouth may be looking to cash in on the 29-year-old. Fulham and Leeds have been heavily linked with the striker on a loan deal but Howe could be trying to unload the striker permanently having failed to impress in the last year.
The enigmatic winger has struggled since he joined the Cherries last summer. Having picked up a serious injury that ruled him out for the majority of last season, he has failed to hold down a first team place ever since. On his day the winger is electric – but his day hasn’t come around too often for Bournemouth in the Premier League. It may be worth sending Gradel out on a short term loan to see if he can rediscover his best form.
