Sky Bet Championship side AFC Bournemouth are linked with a move for former Leicester City and Leeds United forward Max Gradel, reports the Bournemouth Echo.
Gradel, who is currently on international duty with Ivory Coast at the World Cup in Brazil, became a fans’ favourite at Bournemouth in a loan spell from Leicester during the 2007/08 season.
He scored nine times in 34 appearances for the Cherries.
Gradel returned to Leicester and helped the Foxes win the League One title in 2009 before going on to star for Leeds as they achieved promotion to the Championship in 2010.
The 26-year-old left Elland Road for French side Saint-Etienne in 2011 for an undisclosed fee.
Gradel, who has a year left on his contract with Saint-Etienne, came close to joining West Ham United in January.
