Blackpool preparing to make a move for Premier League winger



Blackpool hold a serious interest in Bournemouth midfielder Harry Cornick, according to a respected football journalist.

Alan Nixon is reporting that Blackpool are targeting a move for the Bournemouth winger and have money to spend on him.

After selling Brad Potts to Barnsley, Blackpool are ready to splash the cash on Harry Cornick as they look to improve their midfield department.

Cornick plays predominantly as a winger but has also played centrally and as a striker.

The 22-year-old has only ever played one senior game for Bournemouth after joining the club from non-league side Christchurch in 2013.

That sole appearance came in a 5-1 FA Cup victory over Rotherham United.

During his time with the Cherries, Cornick has been shipped out on loan on numerous occasions.

These include spells with Yeovil Town, Leyton Orient and Gillingham over the past couple of seasons.

Harry Cornick scored once in thirteen games for Leyton Orient in the first half of last season and joined League One side Gillingham for the latter half of the 2016/17 campaign.

At Gillingham, he played six games before returning to Bournemouth this summer.

The Verdict

In order to kick start his career, Harry Cornick needs to make a permanent move away from Bournemouth.

While he is a useful player at League One or League Two level, the young winger is not quite Premier League standard.

At the age of 22, he should have broken into the first team picture by now if he has a future at Bournemouth.

Blackpool would be bringing in an experienced but very young player for third tier football.

Blackpool fans – would Cornick be a good signing? Let us know below…
