Tottenham Hotspur are set to battle Manchester United and AC Milan for Bournemouth star Joshua King.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in desperate need of finding themselves a new centre forward on deadline day in January and were strongly linked with King. And Bournemouth manager Jason Tindall is willing to sell any Cherries star if their valuation is met this summer. That rule will apply to King, who has also been linked with a move to Tottenham.
However, the pair look set to miss out with Football Insider claiming Italian giants AC Milan have launched a shock bid. The outlet cites a source, claiming the seven-times Champions League winners are extremely keen and are preparing an approach. A move to Serie A would come as quite the surprise, but one that would likely interest the 28-year-old Norway international.
King has a year left on his Bournemouth deal and both club and player have a decision to make this summer. He has scored 50 goals in 167 games for the Cherries over his five seasons at the club.
