AFC Bournemouth have made enquiries into the potential permanent signing of Tottenham Hotspur defender Cameron Carter-Vickers according to a recent report from The Athletic.
The Athletic’s Ahmed Shooble writes that there is interest in his services from other clubs now though.
“Bournemouth have enquired about signing Carter-Vickers permanently after the US international centre-back impressed in his season-long loan. But it is thought that, given the quality of those performances, his stock has risen and that Bournemouth are not the only club interested.”
Carter-Vickers spent the 2020/21 season on loan with the Cherries, and caught the eye with a number of strong performances for them in the Championship.
The defender made 26 appearances in total for AFC Bournemouth, but his efforts weren’t quite enough, as they missed out on promotion back into the Premier League, after a defeat to Brentford in their play-off semi-final on aggregate.
It seems unlikely that he’ll be involved in Tottenham Hotspur’s first-team squad moving forwards, with the Premier League side having better options available to them at this moment in time.
He has previously been out on loan with the likes of Luton Town, Stoke City and Swansea City in the past, but has evidently made a good impression with Bournemouth in recent months.
The Cherries will be targeting promotion back into the Premier League next season, although they’re yet to appoint a new manager for the upcoming league campaign, which is set to get under way in August.
Bournemouth will face tough competition to land his signature though, with it previously being reported that both Newcastle United and Belgian side Anderlecht were also keen on reaching an agreement to sign the 23-year-old.

This will have been a no-brainer for Bournemouth this summer.
I was really impressed with what I saw from Carter-Vickers in the 2020/21 season, and I think he’d be a more than good enough option to have starting regularly for the Cherries in next year’s league campaign.
It seems hard to believe that he’ll be in and around Spurs’ first-team anytime soon, and therefore a move to the Vitality Stadium could tempt the defender heading towards the new season.
A move to Newcastle in the Premier League could also tempt Carter-Vickers though, so Bournemouth will have to act swiftly to secure a deal to land his signature this summer.
