Bournemouth eye Lambert move

Newly promoted AFC Bournemouth are set to make a surprise move for Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert, according to the Mirror.

The England international moved to Anfield for a fee of £4m last summer, but has struggled for game time at his home-town club, having made only seven starts in the Premier League and scoring just twice.

Cherries manager Eddie Howe is already looking to strengthen his squad for next season, having secured the Championship title earlier this month.

Prior to his move to Merseyside, Lambert spent five years with Bournemouth’s south-coast rivals Southampton, where he scored one hundred and seventeen goals in two hundred and thirty five games while he has also played for Blackpool, Macclesfield Town, Stockport County, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers.

Liverpool lost to Crystal Palace at the weekend, though victory at Stoke City in their final game of the season will ensure they finish the campaign in fifth place, ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton.
