The 20-year-old striker leaves Lorient and flies to England. Ouattara signs in effect in Bournemouth until June 2028, for an amount of 27 million euros. The Burkinabé joins the current seventeenth in the Premier League, and reinforces an attack which has scored only eighteen goals in nineteen league games. A boon, since the winger has shaken the net six times, and offered as many assists in Ligue 1 since the start of the season.
