Bournemouth have agreed a fee with Swansea City for forward Jamal Lowe as they aim to bolster their attacking options in transfer deadline day, according to The Athletic reporter Stuart James.
Lowe’s long-term future at Swansea has been in doubt in the latter stages of the transfer window, with it having first been reported that Blackburn Rovers were interested in making a move for the forward.
However, Football Insider have since reported that Blackburn have now pulled out of a potential deal for Lowe because of Swansea’s high valuation of the 27-year-old.
That has now opened the door for Bournemouth, who are in the market to add to their squad on the final day of the transfer window as they aim to give Scott Parker the tools to try and challenge for promotion to the Premier League this season.

The Athletic reporter Stuart James has now revealed that the Cherries have had an offer worth around £1.5 million rising up to £2 million accepted by Swansea for Lowe.
This would be an excellent signing for Bournemouth to make before the transfer window closes, with Lowe the sort of player that would add a lot of quality for them in the final third in terms of both scoring goals and creating chances for other attacking players.
Lowe managed to fire home an impressive tally of 14 goals in 49 games for Swansea in the Championship last term and that was in a side that were more defensively minded than Parker’s Bournemouth are this term.
The attacker can operate both down the flanks and upfront alongside another forward and that makes him a very valuable player for Parker to be able to call upon.
This signing would also see them weaken a potential rival for one of the top-six positions and if Parker can get the best out of Lowe in the final third then this could be exactly the sort of move then need to replace Arnaut Danjuma.
