The 23-year-old winger joined Bournemouth in 2018 from Sheffield United and enjoyed a fine debut campaign at the Vitality Stadium. However, he endured an injury-hit 2019/20 season, only returning to action post lockdown.
However, his exploits in his debut campaign seem to have been enough to attract interest from a host of clubs that include Tottenham, West Ham United and Everton. (h/t Daily Star)
And as reported by the Bournemouth Echo, Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall has accepted that the club is open to offloading players this summer, provided their valuation is met.
“First and foremost, it needs to be right for the football club and once it’s right for the football club then, as you’ve seen in the past, I don’t think it’s a club that will stand in anybody’s way providing that the club’s happy with and it meets the valuation of the player.”
This ought to come as a boost for Tottenham in the pursuit of the Welsh international. While we have a number of options in the wide areas, the fact that neither Lucas Moura nor Erik Lamela looked at their best this past season, warrants another addition to the wings.
More so, considering the fact that we will be competing on four fronts and in a cramped schedule, meaning squad depth becomes very much important.

However, Tottenham will have to shell out as much as £40m to sign the Welshman from Bournemouth. That valuation might prove to be a bit problematic, with the club operating on tight budget this summer.
