This summer AFC Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset has been strongly linked with moves away from Dean Court.

The French forward only has one calendar year remaining on his current contract at it has appeared likely that he would be sold and leave the south coast during this transfer window.

Scottish side Celtic were first linked with an interest but their reported offer was rejected in June.

Turkey Super Lig side Göztepe were linked with a loan move, but with Mousset out-of-contract in twelve months time that seemed highly unlikely.

But rather than a move abroad to Scotland or Turkey, it would appear that Mousset is destined to not only remain in England but also the Premier League.

Newly promoted side Sheffield United have had a £10million bid accepted according to numerous reports, such as Alex Crook from talksport and BBC Radio Solent.

The 23-year-old joined AFC Bournemouth from French club Le Havre in June 2016 for a reported fee of £5.5 million, choosing the Cherries over local neighbours Southampton.

He has gone on to make 71 appearances for the Cherries, but that only includes 8 Premier League starts, he’s also only netted 5 times, 3 in the league.

Didn’t we pay Sheff U £10,000,000 for Brooks?

In that case, think of it as a swap and who would not be happy with that? – Join the conversation, click here.
