Bournemouth plan record offer for Charlie Austin

Cherries plot record deal for Austin

Bournemouth are hopeful of signing up Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin for a club-record fee this summer.

The Cherries are considered as favourites to go down in their first ever Premier League campaign.

Manager Eddie Howe is believed to be keen on signing up a out-and-out striker, and considers the former Clarets star as one of ther club's top transfer targets.

The Sun cites that the Premier League newcomers will look to make a record bid in the region of £14m to bring the 25-year-old to Dean Court this summer.

Reports elsewhere suggest that Austin is eager to make a move to Premier League champions Chelsea.
