Bournemouth are keeping an eye on Josh Koroma at Huddersfield and could try and bring him to the club on a permanent basis, as reported by Yorkshire Live.
The Cherries will no doubt be keen to ensure they have the best possible squad available to them for the rest of the season, in order to ensure they get the promotion they desire at the end of the campaign.
One name that is now being linked with a switch to Scott Parker’s outfit is Koroma, who has managed 25 games so far this year for the Terriers and has provided four goal contributions.

Last year, he plundered a further eight goals in even less games – and with age on his side, he looks like he could be a solid Championship talent.
That has led to interest in his services now from the Cherries, who could try and snap him up on a deal this month. According to Yorkshire Live, it may cost them around £2m to do business for the player – and while it is a seven-figure fee, it is not too outlandish of an amount and if the funds are available, it could certainly be done.
Able to feature on the wing, up top or even just behind a striker, the player is a versatile attacking option and his vision allows him to pick out his teammates with ease and split open opposition defences.
His goalscoring rate isn’t the highest but he does possess a decent finishing ability and he is often quick and creative with the ball at his feet. He could be a shrewd addition for Bournemouth then – and if they do lodge a seven-figure bid for him, then the Terriers could soon be waving goodbye to him.
Josh Koroma is actually a really solid signing for Bournemouth and while he isn’t a goal-getter on the same level as Aleksandar Mitrovic or Ben Brereton-Diaz, the player has different elements to his game that can help out the Cherries.
Scott Parker already has a solid option in attack with Dom Solanke, who is well capable of plundering the goals regularly. Koroma instead could help tee up his teammate from the wing or even play behind the former Liverpool man if he was snapped up, helping create even more chances for him.
That’s alongside the fact that he can also play further forward and score himself. Koroma then provides a well-rounded option with the potential to get even better with the more gametime he gets in the Championship. If he continues to flourish then he could become one of the most exciting players in the league.
At just 23-years-old, he also has a high potential resale value. All in all then, it could be a solid piece of business by Scott Parker if he manages to sign the player.
