France Under-20 forward moves to Cherries on a four-year deal from Le Havre

AFC Bournemouth have agreed a deal for Le Havre striker Lys Mousset.

The 20-year-old has signed a four-year contract at AFC Bournemouth after his 14 goals in 29 matches helped Le Havre to a fouth-place finish in Ligue 2 last season.

He becomes Eddie Howe’s third signing of the summer after Emerson Hyndman and Nathan Ake.

"Lys is another player with great potential that we are delighted to bring to the football club," AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake told

"We’re always planning for the future and Lys is not only a young player with exciting potential, but someone who had a massive impact for their club last season."

The Cherries will kick off their second season in the Premier League with a home fixture against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on 13 August.

AFC Bournemouth fans could get their first taste of Mousset in action during the club’s pre-season schedule, with a match against Minnesota United first on the agenda on 20 July.
