Bournemouth were one of the most fascinating sides to watch last season in the English top division. The Cherries finished 9th in the Premier League table under the stewardship of the young Eddie Howe and it goes without saying that his side carved a name for themselves for their all-action style of play.
However, Bournemouth haven’t started their 2017-18 campaign in a riveting manner, having lost their first two outings which comprised of their defeats at the hands of West Bromwich Albion and Watford. Despite luring four galvanising names to Dean Court this summer – Jermain Defoe, Nathan Ake, Asmir Begovic and Connor Mahoney – it seems that Howe’s side still needs some more additions.
As per one of the latest reports by The Mirror, Bournemouth are plotting a deal in order to take Andre Green to their ranks from Aston Villa. Green has been one of the most sought after prospects in English football at this stroke of hour, with mega clubs like Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur watching his developments closely, although the Cherries and their fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace are the frontrunners to make him sign above the dotted line.
Who is Andre Green?
The 19-year-old has emerged through the youth ranks of the Villans and is highly rated by Aston Villa faithful. Howe’s interest to acquire the services of the winger makes perfect sense, for he has something magical in his boots to offer. Green is fast, has a cutting edge, is skilful, has the ability to blast past defenders with relative ease and create chances for his teammates more often than not.
He brings a lot of energy to his side’s offensive endeavours and always intends to put the opposition on their back foot. He found the back of the net in the 4-2 win of the Lions over Norwich City in their Championship outing last weekend and did impress enough to prove that he has the calibre in his to ply his trade week in and week out for any notable side.
Primarily a left winger, Green is capable enough to work efficiently from the right wing as well as from the secondary striker’s slot. The English U19 player toils relentless up and down the pitch and given Howe’s inclination is making use of emerging starlets as well as his dire need to bag a decent player to beef up his attacking arsenal, Green’s move to Bournemouth should benefit the player as well as the Cherries.
