Premier League side AFC Bournemouth are reportedly interested in signing Preston North End forward Callum Robinson, according to reports from The Scottish Sun.
The 23-year old has recently emerged as a target for Eddie Howe’s men, despite being ruled out for a minimum of three months after sustaining a hamstring injury last weekend.
Reports claim, however, that the Cherries may still look to sign Robinson in the January transfer window ready for when he returns around January time.
It is believed that the former Aston Villa forward may cost around £7million, having been such an important player for North End this term – the pacey forward has netted ten goals and produced three assists this season.
Preston will obviously look to keep hold of their star-man, as Alex Neil looks to guide the Lancashire side away from the relegation zone, with the club currently four points off the drop zone in 17th position.
This could be a big blow for Preston – not only is Robinson out for a few months with injury, but if a Premier League side are looking to sign him in January regardless of his spell on the sidelines, then this could sway his head. Robinson is such an important player for Preston – he can play anywhere across the front-line and would be a great addition for a youthful Bournemouth side.
