Bournemouth will reportedly attempt to agree a fee with Levante midfielder Jefferson Lerma ahead of the World Cup.

Bournemouth will reportedly attempt to agree an £18m fee with Levante midfielder Jefferson Lerma ahead of the World Cup.

Lerma, who is part of Colombia's squad for the tournament, has five caps for his country and appeared 27 times in all competitions at club level last season.

According to The Sun, Cherries boss Eddie Howe is an admirer of the versatile 23-year-old, who can also play at right-back.

The newspaper says that Howe will attempt to agree an initial fee with Levante for the midfielder in the coming days, before finalising the transfer while Lerma is in Russia.

The Colombian joined Levante on loan in 2015, before signing permanently with the La Liga side in 2016.
