Benik Afobe: Bournemouth sign Wolves striker for about 10m
Bournemouth have signed Wolves striker Benik Afobe for an undisclosed fee, thought to be about 10m.
The 22-year-old has joined the Premier League club on a four-and-a-half-year deal after passing a medical on Sunday.
Afobe arrived at Wolves from Arsenal a year ago and scored 23 goals in 48 games for the Championship side.
He becomes the Cherries' second signing of the January transfer window after fellow forward Juan Iturbe signed on loan from Roma.
"It's been a long time coming," Afobe told the club website. "I have come here and I'm not saying I'm the finished article or the best that I'll ever be, because I know that I've got a lot to work on.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe said Afobe would "bring strength, power and hopefully goals", and Cherries chief executive Neill Blake said Afobe's "outstanding progress" has been "difficult to miss".
Howe lost striker Callum Wilson and winger Max Gradel to long-term injuries early this season.
Bournemouth's previous record signing was the 8m paid to Ipswich last summer for defender Tyrone Mings - another long-term injury victim.
