Obafemi Martins is not the subject of interest from Bournemouth – according to the player’s representative.
The 30-year-old striker is currently plying his trade at Seattle Sounders in Major League Soccer, where he has scored six goals in eight appearances in 2015.
Reports had linked Martins to a switch to Cherries but speaking to Nigerian websiteSL10.ng, Martins’s unnamed representative said: ”It’s not true at all that Bournemouth are interested in Martins.
“He is the best player in the MLS and the league is on right now.
”So there’s no way he is leaving Seattle Sounders. Martins is settled in America. He has not had any contact with Bournemouth.”
Prior to joining Seattle in 2013, Martins had previously spent time at Levante, Birmingham, Rubin Kazan, Wolfsburg, Newcastle and Inter Milan.
