The Cherries were relegated to the Championship after finishing 18th in the 2019/20 edition of the English Premier League. As a result, they have received multiple offers for their key players, in addition to requests from certain individuals in the squad asking to leave the club.

Nathan Aké and Aaron Ramsdale have already been sold (to Manchester City and Sheffield United), Ryan Fraser did not extend his contract, and both Callum Wilson and Joshua King have suitors.

Forced to part ways with their stars, the 25-year-old Colombian is the latest to receive interest.While Rome and the Biancocelesti are an option, a return to Spain is a more likely possibility.

Lerma joined Bournemouth from Spanish side Levante UD (for €28 million) in 2018. Since then, the central midfielder has made 65 appearances in all competitions (Premier League, EFL Cup, FA Cup), scoring three goals and providing three assists.
