Bournemouth have rejected a bid from Toulouse for winger Max Gradel, according to reports.
The 29-year-old is thought to be interested in leaving the Cherries after a 2016-17 season in which he failed to start a single Premier League game.
According to Sky Sports News, the French club are interested in taking Gradel on loan, but Eddie Howe does not consider him surplus to requirements at the Vitality Stadium.
Meanwhile, The Sun suggests that Toulouse will launch a second bid for the Ivorian in the coming days.
Gradel, who has also played for Leicester City and Saint-Etienne, only signed a new four-year contract at Bournemouth last July.
