Despite their summer relegation to the Championship, Bournemouth are still keeping hold of some of their stars, which one of those being Josh King.
The 28-year-old was linked with a transfer to Manchester United in the last winter market, and when that failed the Red Devils instead moved to loan Odion Ighalo. Last season he scored six goals and provided four assists, and his contract with Bournemouth expires in June.
It may not be an exaggeration to say half the Premier League have been linked, with Tottenham getting a mention recently. Now Torino have been thrown into the mix, and La Stampa report the Serie A club have ‘moved strongly’ in recent hours, to get ahead of ‘attention’ from Aston Villa and Fulham.
Aston Villa have made several additions to their attack in the current market, so King likely isn’t a priority for them right now, whilst Fulham’s most pressing need is signing a defender rather than being linked to endless options.
La Stampa say Torino would be interested in a loan with a €20m buying clause, which doesn’t make a great deal of sense. English based players are often linked with Torino, since Joe Hart moved there on loan, without it ever getting further than the idea stage.
