2 AFC Bournemouth players to watch out for next season



AFC Bournemouth will be looking to consolidate a place in the Premier League next season after securing promotion to this division last month.

Under the guidance of Scott Parker, the Cherries managed to seal a second place finish in the Championship standings by fending off competition from Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town for this spot.

Set to make a return to the top-flight later this year, it will be intriguing to see whether Bournemouth decided to engage in a great deal of transfer activity this summer.

Whereas Parker may be keen to secure the services of some classy operators in the upcoming window, he will also be hoping that some of the current members of his squad will be able to step up to the mark in the Premier League.

Here, we have decided to take a look at 2 Bournemouth players to watch out for next season…

Kieffer Moore

Signed by Bournemouth in the January transfer window, Kieffer Moore suffered a foot injury on his debut for the club and was forced to watch on from the sidelines for 13 games due to the severity of this issue.

Moore marked his return to action last month by netting a brace against Swansea City and then backed up this display by scoring the winning goals in his side’s clashes with Forest and Millwall.

Yet to play in the top-flight during his career, the 29-year-old will feel as if he has a point to prove next season.

By offering some serious competition for Dominic Solanke up-front, Moore may be able to help the Cherries achieve a relative amount of success in the Premier League.

Lloyd Kelly

During Bournemouth’s most recent season in the top-flight, Lloyd Kelly was used on a sporadic basis by the club at this level as he only made eight appearances as his side suffered relegation from this division.

Who did Bournemouth face on the opening day of the season?

Keen to feature week-in, week-out in the Premier League, it will be interesting to see how the defender will fare at this level next season.

In the 2021/22 campaign, Kelly produced some assured performances for Bournemouth as he recorded a respectable average WhoScored match rating of 6.82 in the Championship.

By replicating the assured displays that he has produced for his side in the second-tier at the highest level, the 23-year-old could play a key role in the club’s quest to retain their top-flight status.
