The Cherries have been busy already in the January transfer window.

Bournemouth could be eyeing a move for Motherwell winger Marvin Johnson, reports the Daily Mail.

The Cherries have been busy so far in the January transfer window, securing the signings of striker duo Benik Afobe and Lewis Grabban from Wolverhampton Wanderers and Norwich City respectively.

Both of those were expensive captures for Eddie Howe’s side, with him looking to add goals to his side after the loss of Callum Wilson to a long-term injury.

Despite the money already spent, it appears he may be willing to spend further to try and ensure his side’s Premier League status beyond this season.

They have already been heavily linked with a move for a new winger, with them thought to be part of the race for Queens Park Rangers wide man Matty Phillips, according to the Mirror.

However, should a move for him fail, they have listed back up options and Motherwell’s Marvin Johnson is among them according to the Daily Mail.

The former Kidderminster Harriers star has been a big hit in Scotland, playing a big part in his side’s promotion to the Scottish Premiership last season.

He would be sorely missed in Mark McGhee’s side, with them likely to put up a stern fight to keep hold of one of their key men.
