King was an integral part of a Bournemouth squad that performed admirably in the Premier League from 2015 to 2020 but the Cherries’ relegation to the Championship looks to have caused a problem.

King’s contract at the Vitality Stadium runs out in June and he has been linked with a move back to the top-flight with West Ham and Everton.

Given that they are well in the race for promotion from the second-tier, the Cherries do not seem to be letting him go easily though and this saga could rumble on until the summer.

179 appearances for Bournemouth so far have seen King contribute with 52 goals and 18 assists – proving his ability as a goalscorer and a creator in the Che Adams mould.
