Up to four Premier League clubs are eyeing New Year bids for Scotland international Matt Ritchie.

It is understood that Everton, Manchester United, West Brom and West Ham United have all been keeping tabs on the AFC Bournemouth winger this term, who has starred for the newly promoted Cherries in his first season in the Premier League.

The 26-year-old, who joined Eddie Howe’s side from Swindon Town back in January 2013 for just £400,000, has scored twice and assisted three goals in 18 league games so far this campaign.

Ritchie; who has six international caps for his country, only signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with the Cherries 11 months ago, meaning the club will want at least £5m for their prized asset next month.
