Bournemouth 'agree £27m Jefferson Lerma deal'

Bournemouth reportedly agree a club-record £25m deal with Levante for midfielder Jefferson Lerma.

Bournemouth have reportedly agreed a club-record £25m deal with Levante for midfielder Jefferson Lerma.

Lerma, who impressed for Colombia at the 2018 World Cup, joined Levante from Atletico Huila in 2015, and is believed to have attracted a host of attention with his performances last term.

Last month, it was reported that Bournemouth had failed with a £22.2m bid for the midfielder, although it is understood that the South American has since handed in a transfer request.

According to Sky Sports News, Bournemouth have now agreed a £25m deal with Levante, and Lerma will travel to England this weekend for a medical before signing a long-term contract at the Vitality Stadium.

The 23-year-old could make his Bournemouth debut in their Premier League opener against Cardiff City next weekend.
