Bournemouth winger Max Gradel could be sold for £10 million this summer with fellow Premier League side West Ham and Italian outfit Inter Milan both interested in signing the Ivorian.

The 28 year-old has struggled for game time this season after suffering a knee injury but has impressed since returning to the squad.

Preferring to be deployed on the left side of the midfield or an attacking three, Gradel has made just 13 Premier League appearances this campaign – netting once and contributing two assists.

An African Cup of Nations winner with the Ivory Coast in 2015, Gradel was a huge fan favourite during his time at Elland Road.

Originally joining the club in 2009, the diminutive forward spent just over two years with the Whites becoming a regular first-choice starter.

Helping Leeds finish runners up in League One in the 2009/10 season, Gradel would flourish in the following campaign – netting a career high 18 goals in all competitions.

For his performances in this season, the attacker would be awarded Leeds United Player of the Year, the Fans Player of the Year, and the Players Player of the Year.

After a four season-stint with French club Saint-Etienne, Gradel returned to England to play for Bournemouth in a deal worth £7 million.
