According to Le Parisien, Bournemouth are in discussions with FC Lorient over the signing of midfielder Enzo Le Fée (22) – as they look to conclude a deal alongside the agreement already made for young striker Dango Ouattara (20). Whilst both parties are far from agreeing on a fee for the young midfielder, Benjamin Quarez reports that they are close to an overall agreement, with the English club pushing hard for a deal in the last few days.
As reported with the case of Ouattara, negotiations have been helped by the recent minority acquisition of 33% of FC Lorient by Bournemouth’s American owner Bill Foley – the club would otherwise struggle to attract the player to move to the 17th-placed Premier League side.
It was reported by Santi Aouna previously that an agreement was reached between the Cherries and Les Merlus for the young striker worth €27.5m including add-ons. Reports that the striker had already left France were false, with the youngster turning up to training on Tuesday morning, as reported by Ouest-France.
In the case of Le Fée Bournemouth are attracted by the profile of the midfielder, who has made 19 appearances for Lorient this season, scoring three goals and registering four assists. Lorient manager Régis Le Bris would like to keep the player, however, until the end of the season.
