AFC Bournemouth have hit form over the past week with their first back to back victories in the Premier League since January 2019.

A 3-1 victory over Everton at Dean Court was followed up with another 3-1 victory at St Mary’s against local neighbours Southampton.

In both of those games, the preferred wingers were Joshua King and Harry Wilson. With Ryan Fraser losing his place in the side after showing some poor form during the opening games of the campaign in August.

But AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe’s options in the wide positions are about to get even stronger, with the addition of summer signing Arnaut Danjuma edging closer to fitness.

The 22-year-old joined from Club Brugge for £13.7million last month.

Wales international David Brooks is also waiting to make his comeback.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told on Friday…

“Arnaut is in and around the training group, He trained with us for the first time this week but he’s not training regularly.

“It will be a case of one session and then a gap and then he’ll train again. We’re building up and managing his load.

“With his injury, it’s about not pushing too much in say one or two days. We’ve just got to build his load and then he’ll be fine.

“He looked very good in the one training session he had and I was really impressed.”

Your say…

I am excited to see Danjuma back playing. He looked a very good acquisition in the preseason, very crafty and lively. Looks like he can cause the opposition problems and provides a creative impetus. – Join the conversation, click here.
