Emiliano Marcondes put pen-to-paper at Vitality Stadium today and became Scott Parker's first signing as AFC Bournemouth head coach.
The attacking midfielder arrives as a free agent, having spent the last three years at Brentford, with his most recent contribution being a goal in May's play-off final win over Swansea.
Marcondes also has experience in the Danish League, previously playing for FC Nordsjælland and FC Midtjylland, as well as Denmark's under-21 side.
As the news broke at 9am, the fans were quick to welcome the 26-year-old and we took a closer look at what you had to say!

Positive signing in an area we need. I don't know a lot about EM, but he's been part of a team pushing at the top for a few years now. On the face of it, great business.— Sam (@Sam_A_S) July 3, 2021
Let this be a lesson.. Just because there is no news, that does not mean the club aren't working on things. https://t.co/Nkzovu9uwX
