Danjuma off? Ritchie in? 2 transfer developments we could see emerge at AFC Bournemouth in the next few weeks

on

After failing to win promotion to the Premier League, it has already been a busy start to the summer for AFC Bournemouth.

The Cherries lost to eventual play-off winners Brentford in the semi-finals, and are now preparing for a busy summer on and off the pitch.

With Jonathan Woodgate’s contract expiring at the end of the month, Scott Parker looks set to leave Fulham and become Bournemouth’s new manager this week.

But whilst a big change is set to be made off the pitch, their on-field failure to win promotion has left the future of some key players up in the air.

When is Asmir Begovic's birthday?

Here, we take a look at two transfer developments we could see emerge at AFC Bournemouth in the next few weeks…

Arnaut Danjuma and David Brooks

The Telegraph claim that Scott Parker could face an immediate obstacle if he is to take charge at the Vitality Stadium, and that’s dealing with interest in Danjuma and Brooks.

Danjuma scored 17 goals in 37 games last season, and was undoubtedly one of their biggest bright sparks going forward.

The Dutchman is now attracting interest from the likes of Leicester, Wolfsburg and Lyon, and could be set for a move away this summer.

Brooks, meanwhile, made 32 appearances in the Championship last season, scoring five goals and chipping in with six assists.

The Wales international is now representing his country at the Euros, but his future could hang in the balance once he returns from the competition.

We could see Matt Ritchie return to Bournemouth in the next few weeks, too, with his future at Newcastle looking uncertain.

Ritchie made 18 appearances in the Premier League last season, and had a controversial bust-up with manager Steve Bruce.

He looked set to return to Bournemouth in January, and he is now said to want to return to the South Coast this summer.

Ritchie scored 31 goals in 142 games for Bournemouth during his time with the club, before leaving for St. James’ Park in 2016.
