Bournemouth midfielder Max Gradel has edged closer to a season-long loan move to Toulouse, according to reports.
The 29-year-old only signed a new four-year contract at the Vitality Stadium last summer, but he failed to start a single Premier League game last season.
It was previously reported that Bournemouth rejected a bid for Gradel by the Ligue 1 club, with Cherries boss Eddie Howe suggesting that the player was a key part of his plans.
However, Sky Sports News has claimed that a deal has now been agreed for the Ivory Coast international to spent the 2017-18 season at the Stadium Municipal.
Gradel joined Bournemouth from Saint-Etienne for £3m in August 2015 but has scored just two goals from 27 appearances in all competitions for the Cherries.
