Alexander Milosevic: Linked with move to Bournemouth

Bournemouth are eyeing a move for Swedish defender Alexander Milosevic, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

The Cherries are in the market for defensive reinforcements after allowing Sylvain Distin to leave following the expiration of his contract.

The Cherries conceded the third-highest amount of goals last season in the Premier League and Eddie Howe is keen to shore up his defence this summer.

Milosevic has emerged on Bournemouth’s radar with the 24-year-old’s future at Turkish champions Besiktas uncertain.

The centre-back joined Besiktas from AIK in January 2015, but he saw his progress at the Turkish club interupted by a broken foot soon after his arrival.

Milosevic found his opportunities at Besiktas limited this season and he joined Hannover on loan during the winter transfer window.

The Swede impressed on loan at Hannover making 10 appearances before seeing the loan cut short because of a knee injury.

Milosevic could be keen on a move from Besiktas this summer if he finds himself down the pecking order and Bournemouth are understood to be monitoring his situation
