Bournemouth have agreed a 23m euro (£20.3m) deal with Villarreal for Senegal forward Nicolas Jackson.
Jackson, who can play across the front three, has scored three goals in 24 games in all competitions this season.
The 21-year-old is set to become Bournemouth’s second signing of the January window after Dango Ouattara’s £20m move from French side Lorient.
Jackson began his career with Senegalese side Casa Sports before joining Villarreal in 2019, initially playing for the club’s B team before making his senior debut in October 2021.
He made his international debut as a substitute against the Netherlands at the World Cup in November.
