Joshua King: Lazio Show Interest in Bournemouth Striker

According to The Sun, Lazio are one of 15 clubs interested in Bournemouth and Norway international striker Joshua King. In addition to the Biancocelesti, Paris Saint-Germain, Roma, Newcastle, Burnley, Everton, and Brighton are some of the other known interested parties; this is a result of the Cherries’ relegation to the Championship (the second tier of English football) for the 2020/21 season, following an 18th-placed finish in the 2019/20 edition of the Premier League.

As it stands, the 28-year-old has a contract with Bournemouth until 30.06. 2021 and the club values him at around €30 million. Despite wanting to keep the striker, as King wants to continue playing for a club in one of the top five leagues (England, Italy, Spain, Germany, France), the Cherries may be forced to sell him this summer or risk him leaving for a lot less (possibly even on a free transfer) in one year’s time. This past season, King tallied six goals and four assists in 26 Premier League appearances.
