Liverpool accept £15m Bournemouth bid for Jordan Ibe - source

Liverpool have accepted a bid of £15 million from Bournemouth for winger Jordon Ibe, a source close to the club has told ESPN FC.

Ibe, 20, has been given permission to hold talks with the Cherries, the source added.

The move would present Ibe with the opportunity of regular first-team football in the Premier League, which cannot be guaranteed at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp after he endured a difficult 2015-16 season.

And Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is reportedly an admirer of the Liverpool youngster and feels he can help the winger reach his full potential on the south coast.

Ibe would join Lys Mousset, Emerson Hyndman and Nathan Ake -- on loan from Chelsea -- as new arrivals at the Vitality Stadium this summer.

The England under-21 international has appeared for Liverpool 58 times since moving from Wycombe Wanderers at the age of 16 in December 2011.
