Arsenal's Dan Crowley reacts on Twitter to Benik Afobe's Bournemouth move

Benik Afobe

Afobe's former team-mate at Arsenal sent a message to the former Wolves striker after his move to the Cherries.

Arsenal wonderkid Dan Crowley says he is 'proud' of Benik Afobe after the striker completed a move from Championship side Wolves to Premier League outfit Bournemouth.

Indeed, the 22-year-old left Arsenal for Wolverhampton Wanderers in a permanent deal over the summer but has now earned himself a move back to the top flight.

Afobe couldn't quite manage to break into the first team with the Gunners but was a prolific scorer in the second tier with Wolves.

As such, Bournemouth felt the chance to sign him this January was too good to turn down, with Crowley wishing him all the best on Twitter after the move:

As well as the Arsenal youngster, Wolves striker Nouha Dicko also sent a message to Afobe on social media, while Crystal Palace forward Connor Wickham and former Manchester United man Andrew Cole suggested it's 'time to shine' for the 22-year-old.

At Molineux, Afobe was always a little rough around the edges. He would score goals but also miss chances in space. That said, good strikers will always miss - they'll just ensure they hit the back of the net at least once, too. And he made sure he scored plenty.

Will Bournemouth see the best of Afobe now that they've invested in him to help keep them up?
