Cherries boss Eddie Howe wants to add players with top-flight experience to his rookie squad and the England international fits the bill.

The 23-year-old is one of Howe’s top targets this summer, and wants the experienced centre-back to lead his side’s survival bid in the Premier League next season.

But Caulker has been relegated in each of the past two seasons. He joined Cardiff City from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 and they made an instant return to the Championship, he then moved on to QPR last summer, only to see them relegated after just one season.

The defender cost the Bluebirds and the Hoops around £8 million in transfer fees and it could cost Bournemouth a similar amount.

He made 35 appearances for the Loftus Road outfit last season, scoring once.

The Cherries have also been linked with a move for ex-Leeds United star Max Gradel, but have seen a £4m bid rejected by his club St Etienne.
