AFC Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe: Speculation is a compliment and a concern

Bournemouth Echo: STAR STRIKER: Lewis Grabban STAR STRIKER: Lewis Grabban

BOSS Eddie Howe has described speculation linking Cherries’ prized assets with potential summer moves as both “a compliment and a concern”.

Howe is desperate to keep his squad intact as Cherries look to build on this season’s exploits and mount a challenge for promotion to the Premier League.

But he also knows several players could be targets for top-flight clubs after catching the eye during an impressive campaign in the Championship.

Striker Lewis Grabban and defender Steve Cook have seen their stock rise sharply this season and have both been the subject of rumoured interest.

Grabban, who is set to win the Dean Court golden boot after netting 22 times, was yesterday linked by a national newspaper with a £3m move to former club Crystal Palace.

The 26-year-old south Londoner was rewarded with an improved three-and-a-half year contract by Cherries after rejecting overtures from Brighton in January.

Since then, Grabban, a £300,000 buy from Rotherham in July 2012, has continued his rich vein of form, scoring a further 10 goals in Cherries’ past 21 games.

Cook has starred during his debut season in the second flight and has also been linked with Crystal Palace where former Cherries boss and current Dorset resident Tony Pulis is in charge.

The 23-year-old, a £170,000 signing from Brighton in January 2012, is under contract to Cherries until 2016 having penned an improved three-year deal last summer.

And while Cherries may have tied all their sought-after players to long-term contracts, Howe knows the club could still have to fend off interest during the close season.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Echo, Howe said: “I think it is a compliment, without a doubt. But it is also a concern because you don’t want to lose any of your best players. I have no doubt people will be looking at our players because they have all performed very well.

“By and large, we still have a very young squad so I think it is a possibility we might get bids and we would have to take every one on merit if they were to come in.

“It is not really my call, it is for the people above me to make that call. But I certainly don’t want to sell and I know everybody else will be thinking the same. We want to keep the squad together and add quality to it. That is the aim.”

FFS! The season hasn't even ended yet and the rumour-mill is working overtime!!!

Our current squad is fantastic and I somewhat naively hope that we can keep them ALL together for at least another season to keep the current momentum going.

That said we seem to be in a position were we would profit from some of our top players moving on and I trust E&J to bring in appropriate replacements if necessary, so best not to get too paranoid.

Letting a player go for the "right" money is one thing, the difficult part is getting an adequate replacement.

£3 million for Grabban is a bit of a joke and would hope he doesn't go for that because we are not little old bournemouth and don't need the money no more. I know players all have their price but when you see people like Ings being priced at £6-8 million Grabban has scored more goals and after seeing Ings play down at bournemouth this season he works a lot harder than him and has lot better attributes

If Jordan Rhodes went for 8 million then what is Grabban worth really ?

A 3 million price tag is an insult not that we want to lose him anyway.
A striker that scores 20 plus goals a season must start at £5 million.

They are a rare commodity and should command a real premium.

It would be nice to keep the squad together though.

The players know that they have it in them to make the play-offs next season. Grabban set the standard in January when he decided that Bournemouth were the better club to be at.

It's all rumour and speculation at the moment, the time to worry is when there are approaches made. I for one think that it's disgraceful that Clubs are allowed to make and encourage rumours designed to destabaliize players and their Clubs, look at the "rumours" re Saints players and Manager, which persist in spite of anything the Club says. It should be penalised by the FA - fat chance of that though. I hope that we can keep the squad together, improve it and move forward next Season, but agents are greedy and a playing career is a short one.

Although i'd very much like to see us keep this team together it's the way of the football world that it's possible we could lose 1 or 2 this Summer. At least it won't be the whole team getting sold out from under the managers nose! As long as we get the appropriate money reflecting their ability, and bearing in mind we might have transfer clauses owing a percentage to their former clubs. You can say no to the bids but it'll ultimately come down to the player concerned and you can run the danger of them playing up if you deny them an immediate shot at the Prem,( It could only be the Prem, i don't see the point of any of our team moving sideways in the Championship). But we'll see, it's all just speculation at the moment. We were linked with half a dozen players last pre season and not one of the ones mentioned came in, instead Eddie went about his business on the quiet and surprised a few with some astute signings.
At the end of the day we're probably going to disrupt a couple of other teams this Summer trying to bring in a few players for ourselves.

Spot on post, players will come and go as long as we get the right price for them and replace with potentially better that's the way football works. Its up to Eddie to sell and buy wisely to take the club forward which i have no doubt he will. We are still a relatively small club in this league but with the rumors of a bigger ground therefore a bigger fan base things are continuing to move forward at a good pace. In 2-3 seasons I'm sure afcb will loose it's small club reputation. Next season clubs in this league will very weary of playing us.

Hopefully we can add to the squad rather than sell players who would help us in our premier league ambitions next year.
We could well have sizeable funds coming into the club if Lallana and Ings move on ( both commanding fees in excess of £10m) could mean somewhere in the region of £5m dropping through the letter box at BH7 in the close season.
Here's hoping Lallana has a brilliant world cup for not only Englands sake!

Every week I have had scouts sat in front of me, Roy Keane being the latest, scouts are looking with interest . Players will always come and go this is football but at least lets receive their value so we can progress financially
