Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook modeling game on Real Madrid duo

Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook is delighted with his form this season.

His progress has already been noted by Gareth Southgate, who called up Cook to the senior squad for the friendly against Brazil in November.

He told the Daily Mail: "Last year was a big learning curve. If I wasn't learning, I'd have been frustrated. At Leeds, I didn't have a set position, I was attacking or sitting. Now I am getting the basics right, too.

"I study videos of people like Paul Scholes — his range of passing and timing in the box — and then the leadership of Steven Gerrard.

"I am also a midfielder who wants to run with the ball, carry it with purpose. Luka Modric and Isco are the best at that and they're who I'm really watching now."
