Bournemouth want to make Dujon Sterling their next loan star from Chelsea.
Eddie Howe has prepared a January offer to take the 18-year-old for the second half of the season.
He was interested in signing the full-back during the last window but the Premier League champions wanted to keep him at Stamford Bridge.
But Sterling has since agreed a fresh deal to stay at the club until 2022 – and it is hope a move could happen now his future is secured.
Howe wants Sterling competing with Adam Smith at right-back and give him a chance to shine like he did with Nathan Ake last season.
Ake was loaned to Dean Court last season and played well enough for a Chelsea recall, before signing a permanent deal.
Chelsea lost Dominic Solanke last season and are determined not to lose Sterling as he is considered one of their best hopes to make it from the Academy to the first team.
He was in the England Under-19 team that won the Euros earlier this year and he was named in the team of the tournament.

Sterling made his debut in the EFL Cup earlier in the season when he came on during the victory against Nottingham Forest.
Should he make the move, Sterling would link up with former Blues academy pal Ake.
