Has Kermorgant been AFCB's most impressive buy?

There were quite a few players that have joined the team since Eddie Howe's return, while many have also signed new contracts. It is difficult to say which player has been the most important for the team and yet with all things considered I would vote that Yann Kermorgant is the man that has knitted everything together and provided that spark to really set the team on its top half finish.
Yann was quick to establish himself in the side.
Yann will be looking forward to a full season with AFCB.
The impact of Yann cannot be underestimated. Having only played his first game for AFCB against Leicester City at home in February, he went on to firmly establish himself in the side and provided many vital goals as well as help add to Grabban's impressive total. The Cherries had never looked like a two player strike force during the season until Yann arrived on the scene and I just feel that if Grabban does leave it may well not be the most important cog in the forward line as long as Eddie Howe can find another name to put away some of the chances. That is not to lessen what Grabban has done, but Kermorgant has offered a link between midfield and the strike force that was absent.
Yann has quickly become a favourite at Dean Court.
Yann's heading ability is second to none and it has also given a positive goal scoring finish to so many of Simon Francis' crosses that before went virtually across the box, into an oasis of space, with no AFCB player likely to be in close attendance. So even if Yann remains the lead man in a Cherries forward line without Lewis Grabban, I believe his contribution will still make the Cherries a very dangerous team next season.
Yann was a really great buy but can AFCB find
some quality like that over the summer?
