Bournemouth attacker Lee Tomlin is reportedly wanted by a number of clubs in the summer transfer window.

Tomlin has been on the books of Premier League outfit Bournemouth since the summer of 2015 and has a contract until June 2018, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

However, the 27-year-old, who can play as a striker, winger or attacking midfielder, does not appear to be in the plans of Cherries’ manager Eddie Howe for the 2016-17 campaign.

The Englishman could make just six Premier League appearances for Bournemouth before leaving for Bristol City on loan in the January transfer window.

According to The Bristol Post, City want to sign Tomlin for the 2016-17 campaign. Championship rivals Newcastle United and Norwich City are also reported to be interested in the former Middlesbrough attacker, and so are Premier League-bound Hull City.

It should not come as a surprise that despite his evident failure at Bournemouth last season, a number of clubs are (reportedly) interested in Tomlin.

The attacker has proven himself in the Championship and would be a good signing for any club in the division.

During the 2014-15 campaign for Middlesbrough, the Englishman scored eight goals and created 63 chances in 45 league games.

Tomlin scored six goals and created 30 chances in 18 Championship appearances for City during his loan spell in the second half of the 2015-16 campaign.

Just like Newcastle and Norwich, Leeds United will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship next season. Signing a proven attacking player like Tomlin is only going to help the West Yorkshire outfit.

The Whites do have some good attacking or attack-minded players, such as Stuart Dallas, and signing someone like Tomlin is only going to enhance the quality in that department. The versatility of the Bournemouth player is also something to keep in mind.
