AFC Bournemouth have again been potentially linked with a move for former loanee Maxi Gradel.

Last month AFC Bournemouth were linked with potential moves for Burnley’s Junior Stanislas, Leyton Orient’s Moses Odubajo and former loanee Maxi Gradel.

The Cherries went on to complete the signing of 24 year old Junior Stanislas, whilst Moses Odubajo made a seven figure move to Brentford.

However former loan favourite and Ivory Coast international Maxi Gradel has yet to make a summer move.

The 26 year old made 38 appearances for the Cherries during the 2007/08 season scoring ten goals before returning to parent club Leicester City at the end of the season.

During 2008/09 he was part of the side that won the League One title, but the following season he moved to Leeds United where he completed back to back promotions from the third tier of English football.

In August 2011 he made the move to French side St-Etienne for £3million, where he has won the French League Cup, but has recently struggled to be a first team regular.

He was recently in Brazil playing for the Ivory Coast in the World Cup.

But following their elimination and with Gradel entering the final year of his contract the Daily Mail have reported…

World Cup winger Max Gradel is a firm target for Bournemouth as they try to build on an impressive first season back in the Championship.

On Friday afternoon Sky Sports reported…

“We are hearing that Bournemouth are closing in on the signing of former Leeds winger Max Gradel…” adding “…Gradel had a spell on loan at Bournemouth during the 2007/08 season scoring nine goals for the club and his signing would be a coup for Eddie Howe’s side.”
