Levante midfielder and purported Bournemouth transfer target Jefferson Lerma is reported to have gone AWOL from training in a bid to force through a move to England.

Bournemouth transfer target Jefferson Lerma has reportedly failed to report to training with Levante in a bid to push through a move to the Premier League club.

The 23-year-old impressed for Colombia at the 2018 World Cup and has found himself linked with multiple clubs from around Europe following his exploits in Russia.

Lerma, who is believed to have already agreed personal terms with Cherries boss Eddie Howe, handed in a transfer request last week.

According to The Mirror, the midfielder is upset that Levante rejected Bournemouth's £24m bid for his services and has missed two deadlines to report back to the club's training ground.

Lerma, who is also capable of playing at right-back, made 28 appearances for Levante during the 2017-18 season.
