Bournemouth eye loan move for MLS striker

Millwall v AFC Bournemouth - Sky Bet Football League ChampionshipBournemouth fans in The Transfer Tavern are discussing news that the club a looking to bring striker in on loan who plays his trade in the MLS.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the club are looking into a deal to bring New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips to the club during the MLS off season.

Wright-Phillips is seen as the man to get the goals for the struggling Premier League side, who lost forward players Callum Wilson and Max Gradel through injury.

The side have struggled for goals since Wilson’s injury and with the prolific form that Wright-Phillips has been in since joining the MLS side they see him as the man to fill the massive gap left by the striker.

The 30 year old has been a fan favourite at Red Bull Arena since joining the club, and his goals this season have fired the club to the final of the MLS playoffs.

Since moving to New York Wright-Phillips has played 73 games and scored on 45 occasions, and has played alongside Thierry Henry during his time at the club.

The Bournemouth fans in The Transfer Tavern are not overly convinced that Wright-Phillips is the answer as they view the MLS as a much poorer standard to the Premier League.

Bournemouth fans, would this be a good addition? Let us know in the comments below!
