Ivory Coast striker Max Gradel is reportedly keen on leaving Premier League side Bournemouth in order to have more playing time.
The Elephants striker has not started a Premier League match this season, though his relative lack of on-field action did not prevent him from being included in Ivory Coast’s squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 29-year-old is hopeful of a short-term deal which would see him get back to playing and avoid being further frozen out by Cherries manager Eddie Howe.
Gradel's agent Desmond Tra told The Sun: “Max does not want fans to think he is happy just picking up wages and not playing.
“He has been training normally all season and just wants to be playing regularly."
The Ivorian attacker has been linked with a move to Burnley and West Ham United.
