Republic of Ireland midfielder Harry Arter looks set for a drop down to Championship football this season.
Bournemouth have deemed the 29-year-old surplus to requirements and he spent last season on loan with Cardiff City. The Premier League club recently signed midfielder Philip Billing from Huddersfield for £15million.
Arter played for Eddie Howe's outfit in 0-0 friendly draw at West Brom this week but, per the Bournemouth Echo, has been linked with a move to Fulham.
The recently relegated side are now managed by his brother-in-law Scott Parker.
Speaking after last week's friendly, Howe said Arter's future has not been decided either way yet.
We’ll see. I think it’s difficult to give definitive answers with a period of time left in the window but I suppose the best thing I can say is how much I respect and love the player and the person.
It’s a two-way process. We’ve got to both come together and decide what’s right for us and for Harry.
Fulham want Harry Arter - but I'm told Sheffield United and Stoke are also in the hunt for the Bournemouth midfielder. Nothing agreed as yet but #afcb likely to let him leave with Phillip Billing incoming

Arter played 25 games for Cardiff last season and stood out as the most two-footed passer in the league.
