- Match Analysis
Bournemouth have been improving their squad this summer ahead of the 2017/18 season. After a successful first season in the Premier League in 2015/16, Bournemouth were tipped by many to go down in the 2016/17 season. However, they actually built on their initial successful season and improved their finish, adding some good players to their team along the way. Eddie Howe has done a fine job of keeping them in the league and is starting to turn them into a force to be reckoned with. You can view Bournemouth’s 2017/18 transfers list here.
The AFC Bournemouth squad line up 2017/18 season will consist of these players.
The Bournemouth goalkeeping options are pretty solid at the club at the moment. They already had a reliable man between the sticks in Artur Boruc but have strengthened that position further this summer by signing Asmir Begovic from Chelsea. You would expect those two players to battle it out for the #1 spot this season as they bid for survival in their 3rd consecutive Premier League season.
Bournemouth are doing alright at the back and the permanent addition of Nathan Ake is a massive boost for them. Ake spent half of last season on loan with the Cherries last season but was recalled by his parent club Chelsea in January. At Stamford Bridge, he got very little time on the pitch and as a result Bournemouth opted to buy him permanently in summer 2017 for around £20million.
As you can see, Bournemouth are looking pretty thin in the midfield area. They had more options last season, including the on-loan Jack Wilshere from Arsenal, but now that he’s gone back they leave themselves with only a few options. This will probably be fine for them however as they have no European football so in most cases will only be playing one game per week.
