CHERRIES have been linked with a late move to sign Turkish striker Enes Unal.

The international forward, who plays his club football with Getafe in Spain, has recently returned from a serious knee injury.

Unal, 26, has scored 36 goals in 109 appearances since joining the Azulones in 2020.

Sky Sports are among those reporting Cherries have agreed a loan deal with Getafe for Unal, with an obligation to turn the move permanent in the summer, for £14million.

He is said to be undergoing a medical in Madrid today.

Having started his career with Bursaspor in Turkey, Unal joined Manchester City in 2015, but never played a competitive match for them.

He took in loan spells at Genk, NAC Breda and FC Twente, before completing a permanent move to Villarreal in 2017.

Loans at Levante and Valladolid followed, ahead of his switch to Getafe.

Jose Bordalas’s side currently sit 10th in La Liga.

Unal has scored three goals in 32 appearances for Turkey, and was part of the squad for Euro 2020.

A move for Unal could allow Kieffer Moore to leave Cherries.

The stance has remained the same for the Wales international throughout this transfer window.

While he would be keen to get some game-time elsewhere, having not started a Premier League match this season, Cherries would only allow him to leave should they find a replacement.

Championship clubs are still interested in Moore, including his former clubs Ipswich Town and Cardiff City.

The 31-year-old is currently in London with the rest of Cherries’ squad ahead of tonight’s game against West Ham United.

The transfer window closes at 11pm tonight.
