‘Massive’, ‘Great statement of intent’ – Many Bournemouth fans react as deal is finalised to sign 26-y/o



A number of Bournemouth supporters have been reacting to the surprise confirmation from the Cherries that they have signed Emiliano Marcondes on a free transfer.

Marcondes has been a player in-demand this summer following his exit from Brentford at the end of his contract with the Bees. That came after he had played a key role in helping them earn promotion to the Premier League last term and even scored in their 2-0 play-off final win against Swansea City.

The attacking midfielder had reportedly been on the radar of both Nottingham Forest and Barnsley this summer and was even thought to have held talks with them.

While it had also been reported by the Express that West Brom were also interested in making a move for Marcondes following Valerien Ismael’s arrival at the Hawthorns.

However, Bournemouth have poured cold water on all of those links by announcing out of the blue on Saturday that they have secured the arrival of Marcondes on a free transfer.
