Striker swoop on Howe's agenda after new injury
Eddie Howe admits Bournemouth may need to make a January signing after another injury left his squad "light in the striker department".
Cherries forward Josh King picked up a hamstring problem during Saturday's 2-1 home win over Everton.
The Norway international went to ground in the first half holding his hamstring, and was replaced by Benik Afobe.
Howe is already without the services of summer signing Jermain Defoe for between eight to ten weeks after he fractured his ankle in the Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat to Chelsea earlier this month.
Howe told Sky Sports after the match: "It looks like a hamstring problem so that could be a minimum of two weeks. We are a little light in the striker department now with Josh's injury so we'll have to wait and see if that changes our transfer policy."
