UD Almería have set their sights on AFC Bournemouth manager Andoni Iraola, according to AS.

The La Liga side are yet to register a league win this season and are currently bottom of the table after eight games. The poor run resulted in Vicente Moreno’s sacking and they are yet to appoint his successor.

Claims elsewhere have stated Guadalajara manager Veljko Paunović is in contention for the vacant job at the Spanish club. AS have relayed this and then state the Bournemouth coach is also a target for them.

In the summer, the Cherries appointed the Spaniard after parting ways with Gary O’Neil, who helped them finish 15th in the table last season.

This season, the Premier League side are waiting for their first league win after seven games and are currently in the relegation zone with three points.

Bournemouth face Everton on Saturday and AS state Iraola’s dismissal is ‘not ruled out’ if his side were to suffer a defeat at Goodison Park. If the manager were to leave, Almería would try to bring him back to La Liga.

It’s said Iraola is the ‘most liked’ target for Almería and the two parties already held talks in the summer.
