It’s been a while since we’ve heard about Bournemouth’s Max Gradel, currently on loan at Toulouse in Ligue 1 without an option to buy.

Recently enjoying a good run of form, the winger has scored five goals in his last then league games for the French side, who are currently in a relegation, recently drawing 1-1 against bottom of the table Metz.

In fact, the 30-year-old has been so vital for Toulouse, they’d quite like to keep him around for longer.

At least, that’s what 20 Minutes in France heard and broke the news to the Bournemouth winger in an interview for their website on Thursday.

He replied: “I’ve just learnt that from you (smiles). It’s good news. You can never say never. I’m open to everything. My personal situation comes after that of the club. We’ll see what happens after we’re safe.”

Under contract at Vitality Stadium until 2020, there’s a good chance Eddie Howe and co., who clearly have no interest in keeping him, will allow the Ivory Coast international to leave for a reduced fee at the end of the season.

After that, it’ll most likely be down to the forward to lower his wages.
