Eddie Howe has declared that the arrival of England international Jermain Defoe means that all Bournemouth's strikers will have to "raise their levels".
Defoe will be in competition with first team players Josh King and Benik Afobe in the forward line next term, as well as the recovering Callum Wilson. Speaking to the Bournemouth Daily Echo, Howe outlined that Defoe can be a role model to his teammates too, with Howe believing that the experienced marksman will be a vital addition to the learning environment which has been fostered at the club. Most interestingly though, Howe was keen to point out that Defoe will provide further competition for places up front, with Howe often deploying a partnership upfront. Howe added that he hopes the extra pressure will spur his goalscorers on to even better individual performances. Jul 5 - 3:52 PM
