Signing Asmir Begovic from Chelsea for £11m, as well as having Artur Boruc, Adam Federici, Aaron Ramsdale and Ryan Allsop on their books, the last thing Bournemouth right now appears to be a goalkeeper.

However, over in France, FootMercato report that Eddie Howe is keeping an eye on a shot stopper in Ligue 2.

The man in question is Christopher Dilo, currently playing for Sochaux, who took over from 20-year-old Maxine Prévot in January for most of the second part of the season.

The 23-year-old, during his time in the first-team, conceded 17 goals in 16 games, keeping four clean sheets.

Why are Bournemouth interested? Because he’s free.

Dilo’s contract with Sochaux is du to run out at the end of the month, and quite a few clubs have taken an interest in him.

Providing competition for the Cherries are said to be Brest, Guingamp and Saint-Étienne, who are all much more likely to offer him game time than Bournemouth.

At the end of the day, it depends what the player wants: Premier League reserve football or possible first-team football in France.
