Bournemouth will attempt to lure John Terry with the promise of regular first-team football.
Eddie Howe, the Cherries’ boss, will table an audacious bid to acquire the ex-England skipper in a loan move.
The move would most probably end a 22 year spell at the club he rose through the ranks at.
Terry will be conflicted; he says he would rather not play for any other Premier League club as his dedication to Chelsea trumps most, but is desperate for game-time, having been a fixture on the side-line this season.
Howe is looking for the defensive experience that Terry brings to the game – he is hoping the centre-back can ensure his defence is robust enough to maintain their Premier League status.
Perfect replacement for Ake
Nathan Ake, recalled by Chelsea, was at the heart of the defence and will be missed; Howe feels Terry is the perfect replacement.
Quite ironic, really.
Terry already has a staggering offer from China, where he will receive a huge salary, but is said to be keen on aiding Chelsea’s push for a fifth title.
Terry has played 711 times for the London club, scoring 66 goals.
