Bournemouth fans react to reports Lys Mousset could join Sheffield United

Fans wait outside Bramall Lane before the Sky Bet Championship match between Sheffield United and Brentford at Bramall Lane on August 5, 2017 in Sheffield, England.

Bournemouth and Sheffield United are said to have agreed a fee for the striker.

Sam Surridge and Lys Mousset of AFC Bournemouth participate in a pre-season fitness testing session at Vitality Stadium on June 29, 2019 in Bournemouth, England.

Bournemouth fans are reacting to reports Lys Mousset could leave the Cherries for Sheffield United.

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...

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.
