Following the success of Lys Mousset, AFC Bournemouth could be tempted to make another dip into the French transfer market this summer.

In 2016, AFC Bournemouth signed now 22-year-old striker Lys Mousset from Ligue 2 side Le Havre.

Mousset has now made 34 Premier League appearances, totalling 850 minutes and scoring twice.

His development continues to show great promise and potential value for money, so why not see if another rough gem can be found?

The player in question is Lens’ Mounir Chouiar.

The report comes via France Football who claim, via Google translate, that Lyon, AFC Bournemouth and Watford are all interested in making a summer move for the 19-year-old.

The attacker made eight appearances in Ligue 2 last season and boasts a “technical level very above average“.

Chouiar has represented France at Under 16’s, 17’s and Under 19’s. He would however not walk straight into the first team on the south coast and with AFC Bournemouth’s development squad not playing at a great level, the Cherries would look to send Chouiar out on loan.

The report goes on to add…

OL’s (Lyon) idea would be to recruit him and then lend him to perfect his high-level apprenticeship. The Bournemouth Cherries are following the same thinking, and have even already found the ideal base for developing Mounir Chouiar: FC Zurich.

Your say…

What I miss so much lately about the transfer season nowadays is nobody is claiming to be ‘in the loop’!
We used to get loads saying they were in the loop and he is leaving and so and so is signing and so and so was seen on the beach with Tinders.
Just not the same :cry::cry:Join the conversation, click here.

  • Don’t want none of them onion garlic fellas at MY club thank you very much. We should be lookin at Andy Carroll he’s not happy at West Ham, heard he loves the beach!

  • The French lad may need more time to mature before taking on EPL. Agents always orchestrate b.s. to up the price with “rumours” about Plumpton Green and Porthleven FC’s chasing him. Better to look at benched EPL talent to have on loan or go see a few lower league matches. Ludicrous transfer fees for very young or for positions already manned with good players suggests it’s all an intercontinental money laundering scam. Above all else it is the man management that makes the difference between teams to synchronised talent and grit on the park. Everyone enjoy a great season ahead…..
