Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has listed in The Sun four Bournemouth players who have impressed him.
“Matt Ritchie, Callum Wilson, Marc Pugh and Yann Kermorgant have all stepped up and I really look forward to see them play in the top division next year,” former France international striker Henry wrote in The Sun.
Matt Ritchie was arguably the best right-winger in the Championship this campaign, his pace and tricks enhancing Bournemouth quality of football.
In 46 league appearances for the Cherries, the 25-year-old scored 15 goals and created as many as 98 chances, and had a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 51%.
Callum Wilson joined Bournemouth from Coventry City in the summer of 2014 and was one of the best centre-forwards in the Championship this season.
The 23-year-old scored 20 goals and created 62 chances in 45 league appearances, and had a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 51%.
Marc Pugh has been on the books of Bournemouth since 2010 and can play in three different positions - midfielder, winger, striker.
The 28-year-old’s versatility is a boon, and he was superb for the Cherries this campaign, scoring nine goals and creating 46 chances in 42 Championship appearances.
Yann Kermorgant has perhaps not been mentioned in the media as much as he should have, but there is no denying that he is an important player for the current Bournemouth team.
The 33-year-old scored 15 goals and created 39 chances in 38 Championship, and had a pass accuracy of 67% and a shot accuracy of 47%.
