Bournemouth's 2018-19 transfer activity
Bournemouth broke their transfer record to sign Jefferson Lerma from Levante in a £25m deal this summer, in a window that also saw the Cherries add the likes of Diego Rico from Leganes and David Brooks from Sheffield in a combined £20m deal.
Elsewhere, Bournemouth also loaned out Harry Arter on deadline day to Cardiff City and therefore made him ineligible to face his parent side during season opener.
