Update emerges in Bournemouth’s pursuit of Peterborough United striker

Published

on

Peterborough United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris is not on Bournemouth’s radar at present, as reported by the BBC’s Kris Temple. 

The 27-year-old has caught the attention of several clubs this summer, with Scott Parker’s Bournemouth emerging as one of the teams in pursuit.

However, the latest update from the BBC’s Kris Temple states that despite there are reports linking The Cherries with last season’s third-tier top goalscorer, Parker is not currently viewing him as an option. 

Temple’s update will come as a boost to the other Championship sides, and European clubs, who have registered an interest this summer.

The former Bristol Rovers man was brought in at Peterborough last summer to offer some sort of solution to the glaring void that Ivan Toney had left when he departed from Brentford, but it is safe to say that the 27-year-old did more than that.

Graduating through the youth set up at Coventry City, the front man made his first-team debut aged 16 years and 21 days, becoming the youngest ever player to play for the senior side.

In 2012, Clarke-Harris signed for Peterborough on a two-year deal, but he was unable to pave a way into the first team set up. From then on, the forward has struggled to settle down at a club.

The verdict

The Cherries have a more than competent striker at Championship level in Dominic Solanke, and given the service, he could go on to enjoy an excellent season this time out.

It is difficult to pinpoint where exactly Clarke-Harris would fit in, as Bournemouth would probably benefit more by recruiting a versatile forward, who can operate with the same effect on the wing as he would do up front.

Perhaps one of the better options out there is Clarke-Harris’ teammate Siriki Dembele.

It is no really surprise that the 27-year-old is not on Bournemouth’s radar.
