Along with Thomas Tuchel’s side, it is also reported that up to half of the Premier League’s 20 clubs are also monitoring his availability including Newcastle, Everton and Brighton.

Interest has also stretched to Europe with Italian capital rivals Lazio and Roma also assessing his current situation.

Despite relegation and the double whammy of the Covid-19 outbreak to club finances, Bournemouth though are expected to still demand £25million for the striker.

However should King depart, he would favour a move to a Premier League club, even though he harbours ambitions to play in the Champions League.

Despite the interest surrounding King, the striker did struggle in front of goal this term which resulted in Bournemouth’s relegation on the final day of the season.

The 28-year-old six goals from 26 top-flight appearances during 2019-20 and has one year left on his contract.
