A REPORT claiming Cherries are set to make an offer for Slovakian midfielder Stanislav Lobotka is understood to be wide of the mark.

Italian outlet Calcio Mercato reported the Dorset club and Leicester City were poised to make bids of 25million Euro for the Celta Vigo star, who has played 13 times in La Liga this season.

But the Daily Echo understands Cherries are not set to launch a bid for the 24-year-old.

Formerly of Trenčín and Nordsjælland, Lobotka had been the subject of interest from Chelsea and Napoli – according to the report.
