Bournemouth believe they are leading the race to land John Terry at the end of the season, according to a report.
On Monday, Terry announce his decision to leave Chelsea this summer after a 22-year stint at the club.
The news sparked rumours that clubs from the Premier League, Chinese Super League, Major League Soccer and the United Arab Emirates are all competing for his signature.
According to the Daily Mail however, it is Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe who is increasingly confident of landing the former England man next season.
Bournemouth failed in an attempt to sign Terry on loan during the January transfer window and are lining up a second assault as a result.
The report states that Terry would also be open to a move to the South coast due to his good rapport with Howe, and has already asked for advice on a move.
West Bromwich Albion and Stoke are also interested in the 36-year-old centre-back and will compete with the Cherries for his signature.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has also indicated that he would be interested in signing Terry, saying: “He definitely has got at least a couple of years left with his quality and experience and leadership.
“Every manager and club would think about John Terry if he’s available because there are not many leaders like him, but then again we have experience in that position, we have good players in that position, so never say never but to be fair I don’t think about that right now.”
