According to the Daily Echo, Bournemouth have agreed a fee worth a potential £10 million with Sheffield United.
That is around twice what the Cherries are said to have paid Le Havre for Mousset three years ago.
And with the 23-year-old having scored just five club goals since then, eyebrows have been raised among those of a Sheffield United persuasion.
But what is the Bournemouth verdict on Mousset? And is he really as bad as his scoring ratio suggests?
This is what those of a Cherries persuasion are saying on Twitter...
How much we paying them to take him— Matthew Head (@cherrybear86) July 17, 2019
£10m for mousset? yes pls— Jack (@jackwiles17) July 17, 2019
******* 10m for that crap
After wasting money on players in past seasons its good to see Blake pulling others pants down on players. 36m for Mings and Mousset I'd have taken 15 for both #afcb— Tom palmer (@tpalmer77) July 17, 2019
Not great. Quite rash. Could be a good sub— Dynamic Dom (@DynamicDom29) July 17, 2019
Oh and if the fee is £10 million, that's another cracking bit of business— Chris Jones (@CJAFCB) July 17, 2019
#afcb Sad to see Mousset leave but probably best all round - fee will be interesting.— Chris Jones (@CJAFCB) July 17, 2019
Clearly talented but mercurial and inconsistent and I wonder if he will ever put it all together to realise that talent.
Striker incoming or do we rely on the youngsters to fill the hole ?
Think its right for Mousset to move on, decent price for him, hopefully if he can get a run of starts somewhere, instead of just sub appearances or cup games, he can tap into his potential #afcb— Chris Root (@ChrisRoot10) July 17, 2019
AFCB have accepted a bid rising to £9.5 Million from Sheffield United for Lys Mousset!— the_afcb_fanpage (@theafcbfanpage) July 17, 2019
Shame it never worked out but happy to get £9.5 Million for him (which is a profit). Has the talent but never worked out, will… https://t.co/fBcSOlQbPZ
#afcb Lys is a strange one I feel he could be good, and maybe a loan would have been a good option as he could be the one to leave and bite us on the arse— Ashley Grant (@ashleyafcb1) July 17, 2019
not sure about selling Lys actually— michael (@MikeAFCB4) July 17, 2019
Mousett's arrival would boost Sheffield United's striking options, which currently comprise Billy Sharp, David McGoldrick and the transfer-listed duo, Leon Clarke and Ched Evans.
The Blades continue to be linked with moves for Neal Maupay, the Brentford player and reported Bournemouth target, and Oli McBurnie of Swansea City.
Bournemouth fans - what would Sheffield United be getting with Mousset?
