Bournemouth have completed the signing of France Under-20 striker Lys Mousset from Le Havre on a four-year deal.

The 20-year-old becomes manager Eddie Howe's third signing of the summer following the arrivals of Chelsea defender Nathan Ake on a season-long loan and midfielder Emerson Hyndman on a free transfer from Fulham.

Sky sources understand Bournemouth paid Le Havre £5.4m for Mousset, who impressed last season in French Ligue 2, scoring 14 goals in 29 matches.

"We're always planning for the future and Lys is not only a young player with exciting potential, but someone who had a massive impact for their club last season.
