The forward has been a target for the Cherries in the last few transfer windows with his performance since the turn of the year increasing interest in him.

Bournemouth had previously seen their first two bids rejected by the Championship side due to it not meeting their valuation.

However, Pearson has revealed both clubs have now reached an agreement and the Ghanaian international sticker has been granted permission to speak to the Premier League side with an opportunity for a medical.

“As we stand, Antoine is in discussions with Bournemouth, I can confirm that,” Pearson said.

The driver of those types of situations are two clubs agreeing a fee. That’s happened now and the club will at some point disclose what that is but not today at a press conference.

“He’s been given permission to speak to the club and there will be an opportunity for a medical. That’s where we are with that and no real further comments on that at the moment”.

“The most important fact to recognize at the moment is a fee has been agreed between the two clubs so now there are other factors to wait to see; one being a medical and one being agreeing personal terms,” he added.

Semenyo has six goals and three assists in the Championship this season including three goals in his first three league appearances in 2023.
