3 Players Bournemouth Should Sign To Challenge For A Place In The Top Half Of The Table Next Season

With a very refreshed and steady last season, Bournemouth will be looking to reach further heights in the next season. The Cherries have shown their solidity and rigidness in the most difficult times and the result has clearly reflected in their performances.

Eddie Howe’s man registered their best finish in the Premier League last term and will be looking to topple their previous record when they kick start their next season. Howe has already made some strong statements in the transfer market by roping in Asmir Begovic from Chelsea while Sunderland forward Jermain Defoe is set to join the club after agreeing to terms.

A number of losses in the middle part of the season did some damage but the Cherries came back strongly with some solid performances in the closure session of a heavily fruitful campaign.

Howe didn’t have many renowned players, but every player exceeded expectations putting emphatic all-round displays, throughout the season. Their most famous moment had to be the match against Liverpool when they fought back from a two goals deficit to win the match 4-3 with an injury time equaliser from Chelsea defender Nathan Ake. Here are three players who could improve them this summer:

John Terry

Howe needs to reshape his defence after conceding a galore of goals last season. The manager has been eagerly searching a player with experience and reputation and Terry is the perfect blend of both. Bournemouth was the first of many teams to offer the 36 players a new deal after his deal with Chelsea expired,

Terry will be a very viable option for the Cherries as far as game time is concerned. The ex-Chelsea captain is unlikely to play every match at this age but having won the Premier League title a number of times, he could disburse his experience and energy among the younger players.

Jack Wilshere

Wilshere had a very effective association with the Cherries having played the last season on loan at the Vitality Stadium. The English international will be looking for new opportunities as his Arsenal career seems to be over. He has a year left on his Gunners contract but there hasn’t been any contact from the club over a possible extension.

Creativity in the middle of the pitch has been a concern for the Cherries and the addition of Wilshere could work for the gaffer. The Arsenal man has proven earlier that if given a chance he can perform with sheer conviction and Howe should go after him.

Jermain Defoe

Bournemouth have enough goals in them as Josh King have heavily contributed to them by firing up 16 goals last season. But still, in a very competitive League, Howe needs to enhance his attacking front and Defoe’s addition will add a new dimension to the team.

The 34-year-old has shown his capability for Sunderland last season and with such levels of fitness he currently possesses, he can still continue for a few more years and help improve the Cherries this summer.
