All but done: Bournemouth strike deal over forward transfer

Bournemouth have struck a deal with Galatasaray over Lys Mousset according to reports in Turkey.

Mousset will join the Lions on a one-year loan pending the decision of head coach Igor Tudor.

Galatasaray have the option to include a buyout clause fee which the report claims will be set in the region of €2-3 million.

The 21-year-old joined Bournemouth on a €6.75 million move from Le Havre last summer amid high expectations, scoring 14 times and providing three assists for the French outfit.

The former Le Havre man has however, failed to score a single goal this season.

Mousset does have another three-years remaining on his contract with Bournemouth but he has struggled to settle in.

The French forward has played just 380 minutes of football in all competitions this season.
