Bournemouth Interested In Explosive Middlesbrough Winger: Is Howe The Perfect Mentor For Him?

Bournemouth’s topsy and turvy season got some much respite following their thumping win over the Terriers this weekend. Eddie Howe’s side were rotting in the relegation zone but their positive performances have suddenly pushed the up the points table.

They are reportedly interested in Middlesbrough youngster Marcus Tavernier. The winger came through the Boro youth ranks and has progressed to the senior setup. The 18-year-old is one of the highly rated youngsters at the Riverside and is likely to hold a much better position at the club.

Tavernier’s prospect has attracted Howe and he has identified the player as a potential arrival at the Vitality Stadium. The youngster’s appetite for goals is pretty impressive and he netted the winner against Sunderland in the Championship recently.

From contractual situation, Boro could be in problem as the player’s contract is going to run out at the end of this season. The club do have a one-year extension clause in the contract and they are likely to exercise that to avert any danger.

Arsenal and Everton also have extensively scouted the player and are believed to be in the race to land him in near future. Garry Monk has preferred youngsters since he came in and Tavernier has embraced the opportunity with both hands.

He started in the Cup games and impressed the gaffer heavily. He even scored against Bournemouth and his display on the pitch has given the manager some food for thought. Boro are currently very much in the race for a place in the Championship playoffs and Monk will hope to have a vast squad, in a bid to rotate it later in the season, if needed.

Tavernier has also earned an England U-19 caps and has shown the promise with his glittering display. One of the most highly rated teenagers in the Championship, he would definitely fancy a chance to a move to the Premier League.

First team opportunity would be scarce if he does move to the Vitality Stadium but he is well suited to the attacking philosophy of the Cherries. Primarily a left winger, he is a very creative player and loves to take on even the best of defenders.

Bournemouth are expected to test Boro’s resolve in the January transfer window but do you think Marcus Tavernier is a good fit for the Cherries?
