Championship side Bristol City have rejected two quick-fire offers for Ghanaian international Antoine Semenyo from Bournemouth.
Earlier today, Bournemouth made an offer reported to be in the region of £8million. The bid which was considerably short of Bristol City’s asking price was rejected.
The Premier League side then returned with an improved bid believed to be an initial £8m plus £2m in add-ons which has also been turned down.
Bournemouth are now considering walking away from the deal and pursue other targets. Manager Gary O’Neil was hoping to sign the Ghanaian striker ahead of this weekend’s crunch clash with Nottingham Forest.
Following injuries to Dominic Solanke and Marcus Tavernier, Bournemouth who are battling relegation in the Premier League have been active in the transfer window looking to bolster their attack.
The Cherries made Antoine Semenyo a top target but all offers have fallen considerably short of Bristol City’s valuation for the striker who has 18 months left on his contract at the club.
