Cherries linked with Senegalese striker

Bournemouth have been linked to Senegalese striker Myabe Diagne, according to TurkishFootball. The striker plays for Kasimpasa and is also being tracked by Hull City, Real Sociedad and Reading, according to the report. With 12 moths left on Diagne's contract, Kasimpasa are believed to be open for offers. The Turkish club picked the Sengalese player up on a free transfer last January and  from TJ Teda of China, so will be likely to make a good profit from any deal.
AFCB aren't just looking for defenders.
In his early career Diagne was signed by Juventas, even if he did not play a game for them. At 26, he is a striker that is approaching his best years and would probably expect to start games having been a big hit for Kasmpasa last season scoring 12 times in 17 appearances.

If Bournemouth do go after the striker it will raise fresh gossip over which striker might be either sold of loaned out from AFCB next season. There has been talk about Josh King not being happy with where he is being played and Jermain Defoe could well feel aggrieved that he has not been first choice in a starting role and the Rangers talk has not gone away. Callum Wilson does look set to be holding the striker's jersey at the start of next season, having just signed a new four-year deal.
The transfer fees that have come in for the likes of Grabban, Gradel and Afobe will make AFCB feel cash-rich at the moment, but while only one signings has been made for incoming players I get the feeling that this summer is shaping up as one of the biggest shake-ups at AFCB in recent seasons.

If Eddie Howe really wants to take the club forward, it does seem clear that he needs to look at all areas of the park to get better results, and strikers in hot form that are looking to come to the Premier League are perhaps grabbing his attention just as much as the defenders that the fans are perhaps craving for even more this summer.
