AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell believes the imminent arrival of an eighth striker to Dean Court will be a big addition to the Cherries squad.
Mitchell confirmed on Friday that AFC Bournemouth had agreed personal terms with a new striker and thought the deal would be concluded over the next few days.
The Cherries are yet to agree terms with the forwards current club, which is reportedly a foreign based club.
Rumours had suggested that Cherries manager Paul Groves had hoped to bring former loanee James Keene back to England, but Mitchell confirmed the former Portsmouth striker was not the player the Cherries have agreed terms with.
The unnamed player will compete with Wesley Thomas, Matt Tubbs, Josh McQuoid, Lewis Grabban, Charlie Sheringham, Jayden Stockley and Steve Fletcher in Paul Groves squad next season if the deal is completed next week.
Mitchell told the Daily Echo...
'..."If we are going to be successful, we are going to need the best from all the players and that includes all the forwards. We don`t want to overcook the goose but I don`t think we are."
'We think he will add a great deal of value to our existing strike-force, He is someone who had not been on the radar until recently and, if it goes through, we will have done very well.
"It will be a feather in our cap."
