Gradel out for six months and more signings for Cherries

Max Gradel could be out for as much as six months, according to reports from TalkSport. The Ivorian international only joined the Cherries this summer but his match against Leicester City ended with a torn cruciate ligament injury that is likely to force him out for most of the season. The knee injury is just one of a number of injury worries for AFCB – there is no news yet on Tyrone Mings and Charlie Daniels who also sustained injuries on Saturday.
Max Gradel is thought to have a long term injury after being assessed.

Meanwhile, it has been a hectic morning for the Cherries in the transfer market. While the only player to have a medical is Glenn Murray, there has been news of Tomas Andrade of River Plate agreeing to a loan move for the season to the Cherries and winger Diego Perotti of Genoa is said to be another target for AFCB. Will Buckley at Sunderland is also of interest to AFCB because of the situatio with Max Gradel.

Norwich City also made a bid for Steve Cook this morning that was rejected but there are possible moves for Kermorgant, Camp and Rantie. The De Guzman deal looks like it’s off though.

“There will be at least two more players joining Bournemouth between now and the window closing at 6pm. I know they are in close talks to sign a left-back and possibly a winger. Frustrations over Norwich striker Lewis Grabban – who Norwich insist is not for sale - have forced the Cherries to switch their attention to Sampdoria striker Eder. They have a private plane waiting to bring the player to Bournemouth if necessary.”
