The Bournemouth fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports linking them with a move for a new midfielder.
Transfer Market Web is reporting that the Premier League side are set to make a summer swoop for Jordan Veretout.
Veretout currently plays for Aston Villa but following their relegation to the Championship, it appears that he will be one of many to leave the club this summer as they look to reduce their massive wage bill.
The Frenchman only joined the Midlands club from Nantes last summer, and has represented France at youth and Under-21 level.
Veretout was part of an impressive Under-20 French side which clinched the World Under-20 Championship back in 2013, and starred alongside Geoffrey Kondogbia and Paul Pogba in a midfield three.
The Bournemouth fans in The Tavern would be delighted if the club secure the services of Veretout, and think he is exactly the type of player the club should be looking to sign!
Our landlord has to agree with the Cherries fans here in the pub, and feel his technical ability will fit perfectly with Bournemouth’s style of play.
Villa fans….. Will you be gutted to lose Veretout? Is he good enough for the Premier League? Let us know below!
