The winger was signed by Eddie Howe for Bournemouth back in 2019 and excelled for the Cherries in the Championship, earning him a £21 million move to the Europa League champions.

The 25-year-old has 13 goals and four assists in 28 appearances this season and has helped the Yellow Submarine into the Champions League quarter-final after he scored in their 3-0 victory over Juventus.
