Howe faces battle for target
Bournemouth face an uphill battle to land Gent playmaker Giorgi Chakvetadz with several high-profile rivals also chasing him.
The 19-year-old came through the youth team at Dinamo Tbilisi before making the move to Belgium in 2017, where he has continued his improvement and caught the eye of a number of watching clubs.
As well as the Cherries, both Tottenham and Catalan giants Barcelona are also interested in the 19-year-old.
On the face of it, the chances of Eddie Howe's team winning the race appear slim but they will be able to offer him a greater chance of first-team football than he would get at either of the other clubs interested.
With four goals in just seven games for Georgia, the midfielder appears to have a big future and clubs are now vying for his signature ahead of the January transfer window.
