AFC Bournemouth: Boss Eddie Howe continues to plot next move in transfer market
CHERRIES manager Eddie Howe is continuing to plot his next move into the transfer market after the arrival of Dan Gosling as his first summer signing.
Howe has been linked by the rumour mill with several players during the past couple of weeks – although he never comments publicly on speculation.
Cherries saw off some strong competition to secure the services of Gosling, the midfielder agreeing terms on a four-year contract following his release by Newcastle.
Asked by the Daily Echo whether any other signings were in the pipeline, Howe replied: “We are always looking to improve the squad and looking to move forward. We will always be looking at players to see if there are any out there who could improve what we have.”
Howe ended his lengthy pursuit of Gosling – with talks having started in January – when the 24-year-old finalised terms earlier this month, with the move still subject to a medical.
Reports last week suggested Howe was lining up a move for highly-rated Coventry City striker Callum Wilson as a possible replacement for Lewis Grabban.
Grabban was given permission to talk to Cardiff City after the Bluebirds had triggered a £3million release clause in his Cherries contract.
However, when contacted by the Daily Echo, a Cherries official confirmed there had been no developments regarding Grabban’s situation.
The striker, who netted 22 times for Cherries last season and finished the campaign as one of the leading goalscorers in the Championship, is currently on holiday.
Wilson, 22, was voted Coventry’s player of the year after plundering 22 goals in League One for the Sky Blues and is also reportedly a target for Wolves and Nottingham Forest.
Meanwhile, Sky Sports have suggested defender Steve Cook is wanted by Premier League new boys Burnley, while Celtic striker Georgios Samaras is rumoured to be a target for Cherries.
