Sources: Bournemouth make move for Watford star Quina after go-ahead
Bournemouth have set their sights on signing Watford winger Domingos Quina, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Hornets are listening to offers for the Portuguese 21-year-old in the final fortnight of the window.
A Bournemouth source has told Football Insider that the club have registered their interest in signing Quina on loan or in a permanent deal.
Qunia most recently played for Granada as he joined the club on loan in February.
He made eight appearances for the Spanish club and scored two goals.
He wasn’t included in the matchday squad for Watford’s 3-2 win over Aston Villa last week.

Quina joined the Hornets from West Ham in 2018.
The midfielder spent his youth with Benfica before signing for Chelsea in 2012.
He has never managed to hold down a starting position at Vicarage Road and only made 14 Championship appearances last season.
The Portuguese can play in a more attacking role which Bournemouth may look to exploit.
The Cherries are on the lookout for new attackers after selling Sam Surridge to Stoke earlier this summer.
On 5th August, this site also revealed the Cherries had entered the race to sign Liam Delap.
They faced a battle with Stoke over the transfer but any deal is now on hold after the player picked up an injury.
Scott Parker’s side have not struggled for goals so far this season, scoring two in each of their three league games.
However, most of the goals have come from the midfield with Dominic Solanke only netting his first of the season last night against Birmingham.
