West Ham to move for Austin

West Ham United will move for Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin ahead of this weekend’s Premier League kick-off, according to the Mirror.

A whole host of top flight clubs have been linked with a move for the twenty-six year old, though the Hammers are keen to secure a deal as they look to bring in cover for Enner Valencia, who was stretchered off with a knee injury in their recent Europa League draw with Astra.

Austin impressed in his debut season in the EPL with eighteen goals in thirty-five appearances, a tally which was only bettered by Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane and Diego Costa of Chelsea.

In total, Austin has bagged thirty-eight goals in seventy-three appearances since signing from Burnley, where he also had an impressive scoring ratio.

West Ham kick off the forthcoming Premier League campaign with a trip to Arsenal, with the away win priced at 11.0 (10/1).
