Bournemouth have had a £15m bid for England U21 international Jordon Ibe accepted by Liverpool, according to Sky sources.
Ibe, who joined Liverpool from Wycombe Wanderers in 2011, has found first-team opportunities limited under manager Jurgen Klopp and started just 12 Premier League matches last season.
The 20-year-old, capped four times at U21 level by England, is currently contracted to Liverpool until 2020 after signing a new five-year deal to remain at Anfield last May.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is looking to bolster his attacking options after allowing winger Matt Ritchie to join Sky Bet Championship side Newcastle.
Leeds midfielder Lewis Cook is also understood to be on the verge of agreeing a deal to move to the south coast for an undisclosed fee.
The 19-year-old academy graduate - a long-term target of Howe's - has been an ever-present for Leeds since making his debut in August 2014, scoring two goals in 85 appearances.
Cook, who was named the Football League's young player of the year in April, is out of contract next summer.
Howe has already acquired the services of defender Nathan Ake on a season-long loan from Chelsea, midfielder Emerson Hyndman on a free transfer from Fulham and striker Lys Mousset from Le Havre in a deal worth £5.4m.
