Lys Mousset hits out at Bournemouth - ‘I could have signed for Arsenal, Spurs’

AFC Bournemouth striker Lys Mousset has blasted manager Eddie Howe.

The 20-year-old French striker joined the Cherries from Le Havre in the summer but has featured for just 23 minutes of the Premier League season, which makes him feel like an outcast.

"If I wanted to be third, fourth or fifth in line as a striker I could have signed for Arsenal or Tottenham," he said.

"It's bizarre, but I feel like I've been left to one side, and it annoys me to think I might go a season without scoring.

"The manager told me I would play in the last league game against Southampton but in the end, I wasn't even in the group.

"Frankly, I feel like I'm a spectator. I can't stay like this. I always dreamed of being in England, but not in these conditions."
