Is Jonathan De Guzman perfect for Cherries?

Midfielder Jonathan De Guzman is expected to make up his mind this week on whether to join the Cherries or the Black Cats if Sunderland in the Premier League. The player is currently at Napoli and has wanted a return to the Premier League where he has played for Swansea City on loan between 2012-14, while a Villerreal player. Now Eddie Howe is looking to make him a playmaker to improve AFCB's fortunes this season.

The area of central midfield has been difficult to cover while Harry Arter has been out. We have seen performances there by Dan Gosling and Eunan O'Kane that have worked reasonably well with Andrew Surman but De Guzman would add much more power going forward. He is also another player that is good from deadball situations, and free kicks in and around the box are likely to fall to the Cherries this season with the kind of pace that is already in the team.

Jonathan's international career is also well established having made 14 appearances for Holland even though he has not scored for his country yet in a full international. I'm excited by the prospect of another international player perhaps coming to Dean Court and the central midfield area is an area where I'd like to see more strength added to the team, so let's look out to see if Jonathan comes in or not this week.
