It’s been a summer of inflated transfer prices, and another English player is set to move for a price you would have laughed at two seasons ago.
After James Tomkins moved from West Ham to Crystal Palace for £10million, once a fee for good to great player, Bournemouth are believed to be interested in signing Liverpool’s Jordan Ibe for £15million.
£15million is a mere drop in the ocean for Premier League clubs nowadays, but regardless Jurgen Klopp will no doubt be keen to snap the hands off the Cherries for this sale and invest in requirements elsewhere, promoting the talented young Sheyi Ojo into a more regular first team role.
This isn’t is the first time Bournemouth have spent a questionable amount of money on an English talent. They broke their club record to bring Tyrone Mings in from Ipswich last season, but he’s only played one game for the club due to injuries.
Silly season continues…
