3 EFL alternatives Bournemouth should consider if the Cherries are beaten to Middlesbrough man



Bournemouth have held an interest in Middlesbrough playmaker Marcus Tavernier for the majority of this summer, with Premier League competition recently starting to surface.

Fellow promoted club Nottingham Forest have now seen an eight-figure bid rejected for the 23-year-old, as per a report from, with a report from TEAMtalk suggesting that Boro are now demanding £15 million.

Here, we take a look at three EFL alternatives Bournemouth should consider if they are beaten or priced out of this particular proposed move…

Callum O’Hare 

Bournemouth could make a late move to hijack Burnley’s move for Callum O’Hare, with the Clarets reportedly closing in on his signature.

The report states that the Coventry City attacking midfielder is likely to costs around the £9 million mark, and when given that he is someone who also possess the required abilities to thrive in the Premier League, it is a fee that is justifiable. 

O’Hare’s jinking runs, creativity and attacking intelligence stands out when watching the 24-year-old, whilst he is also equally as impressive off the ball.

Quiz: Can you name which club these 27 ex-AFC Bournemouth players are playing for now?

Steve Cook?

Josh Bowler 

A player that is still on Bournemouth’s radar, Blackpool’s Josh Bowler is someone that the Cherries could strengthen their interest in, should they turn their attention away from Tavernier. 

More of a winger than an attacking midfielder, Bowler is still a versatile option who could excel in an attacking midfield role if required. 

The Blackpool man is likely to be a cheaper option than the aforementioned duo, however, Nottingham Forest are continuing to monitor his situation too. 

Chris Willock 

QPR’s Chris Willock was excellent for the majority of the last campaign, proving to be a level above on several occasions. 

His ability to create in the final third, relentlessness and intelligent footballing brain would justify a move to England’s top-tier. 

Possessing two more years on his current deal, it may be quite an expensive deal to complete but it is unlikely to surpass the £15 million that Middlesbrough are asking for Tavernier.
