Bournemouth in talks with Dortmund over Larsen

Bournemouth have started negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over the possibility of signing Jacob Bruun Larsen, according to Sky Sports.

Larsen joined Dortmund’s youth setup at the age of 16 from Danish club Lyngby BK. He progressed through the ranks and went out on loan to VfB Stuttgart for the second half of the 2017/18 season. Since his return, he has made a total of 41 appearances in the black-and-yellow shirt, scoring three times and assisting five. For a Denmark international, mostly playing on the left wing but versatile enough to play anywhere across the front line, those numbers are far from impressive.

This season he has played in nine games, but only one of those from the start – a 2-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the DFB-Pokal back in October.

With just 18 months left on his contract, there is no possibility of a loan. Any deal would have to be on a permanent basis, but the reports about the price the Bundesliga side are demanding extremely contradict one another. Sky Sports believe the Cherries would have to pay up to €15 million for his services, while Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet claim Dortmund would be willing to let him go for as little as €4m.
