Southampton eyeing Charlie Austin swoop

Premier League outfit Southampton are considering summer bid for QPR striker Charlie Austin, according to Daily Mirror.

The Saints are not entirely satisfied with their options in the final third, with starting striker Graziano Pelle struggling to score on regular basis.

As a result, Ronald Koeman could make a move on Charlie Austin, who is certain to leave the Rangers for a top club this summer.

Despite playing for the team that eventually got relegated, the 25-year-old has scored impressive 17 goals in 34 outings this season, earning his first ever England call-up in the process.

The highly rated forward is likely to be the subject of a genuine bidding war in the summer transfer window, with Saints ready to start the bidding at £10 million.

Austin will be on the pitch when QPR face Leicester on the road and he can be backed at 8/5 to score at King Power Stadium.
