According to a recent report by L’Equipe, Bournemouth are showing interest in acquiring the signature of Le Havre striker Tino Kadewere. However, the same source has also revealed that the Cherries will face stiff competition from Southampton as well as other clubs from Germany and France in pursuit of the €10m-rated Ligue 2 goal-getter.

Kadewere’s Prolific Season In The French Second Division

The Zimbabwean striker has enjoyed a fantastic start to this campaign after putting in numerous goal-scoring displays for Le Havre so far. He has been in red hot form in front of the opposition goal this season which has helped his team climb to the 7th place in the Ligue 2 standings.

Kadewere has scored 17 goals and provided four assists in 19 appearances for the French outfit this term in all competitions. He has also earned five senior caps for the Zimbabwean national team but is yet to open his goal-scoring account for his country.

His outstanding form has impressed a lot of clubs across Europe, so Eddie Howe will do well to lure him to the Vitality Stadium during this January transfer period. Bournemouth have currently got an injury crisis with a lot of their first-team players missing in action at the moment.

What Does The Zimbabwean Sensation Offer On The Pitch?

Kadewere is a quick and powerful runner with the ball who can unselfishly run the channels for the benefit of his team. He is dominant in the air due to his sturdy frame and can score a few goals with his head. What makes the Zimbabwe international such a highly sought after talent is his ability to consistently find the back of the net in the French second division.

Will Signing Kadewere Be A Wise Move For The Cherries?

Howe cannot take any more risks on unproven players as his January signings might determine where his team ends up finishing in the league table at the end of this campaign. Therefore, he is better off opting for a striker who has already proven his worth in English football.

Kadewere is a prolific goal-getter, but he might struggle to cope with the physicality and high intensity of the Premier League so it won’t be a wise move for the Cherries to make an approach for his services before the end of this month.
