Lewis Cook is a young English playmaker who has been creating a big buzz at Leeds United and his recent move to Bournemouth has given him the chance to show his skill at the top level. With the recent signing of Jordan Ibe grabbing all of the clubs headlines. Lewis Cook’s arrival has been somewhat understated which has lifted the pressure to perform for the youngster. However, he does seem to be the more suited with the ethos of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth from the two signings.
As a player, he is very creative and skilful on the ball with a decent passing range. He is a grafter off the ball and works very hard when closing down the opposition. He doesn’t seem bothered or afraid to get physical in the midfield and works his socks off every time he gets on the pitch. A player who will definitely push for Harry Arter’s spot in the Bournemouth side and will provide much needed competition in their midfield. His ambitions for the season will most likely to have an impact in the Bournemouth first team and hopefully get into the England’s U21 side.
