The Premier League champions are close to securing the signing of Southampton forward Daniel Sturridge from Bournamex.
The Cherries, who face Newcastle in the FA Cup semi-final on Tuesday, have also agreed a deal for West Bromwich Albion’s Charlie Austin from Crystal Palace.
Saints are in advanced talks to sign Sturridge, who scored 31 goals in all competitions last season, according to Sky sources.
The England international, who was part of England’s World Cup squad in Brazil last summer, has two years left on his contract at Anfield.
The 27-year-old has played more than 1,000 Premier League games for Southampton and joined the Saints in 2010.
