Bournemouth lining up £15million transfer for Bristol City’s Antoine Semenyo and will tempt striker with huge contract

    BOURNEMOUTH are preparing a £50,000-a-week contract to tempt Antoine Semenyo from Bristol City.

    The Cherries are finding it hard to land players because they are near the drop zone.

    But they could get Ghana forward Semenyo, 23, for £15million.

    Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil is on the hunt for attacking reinforcements with the club teetering on the edge of the relegation zone.

    And he believes Semenyo could be the man to help keep the Cherries in the Premier League come the end of the season.

    Bournemouth are yet to make any signings this month.

    They are also keen on bringing Arnaut Danjuma back from Spanish side Villarreal but they will want a guaranteed £35m deal for the Dutch dazzler they signed from the Cherries for £21m 18 monts ago.

    Former boss Scott Parker signed six players last summer, including Ryan Fredericks, Joe Rothwell, Marcus Tavernier, Marcos Senesi and Jack Stephens on loan.


    But they couldn’t prevent the Cherries’ struggles in the league.

    Parker became the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season when the Cherries lost 9-0 to Liverpool in August.
