The transfer deadline day in England is today and one of the most discussed names which will be Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin as it seems he will make a deadline day move to Premier League from Queens Park Rangers.

With many clubs like Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion interested in the strikers’ signature, he is likely to make a move to the top tier of English football.

Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace were keen on the Queens Park Rangers striker but need to ship current players out to finance the move and Bournemouth are now hoping to seal the switch.

Bournemouth is increasingly confident of winning the race to sign QPR hot-shot Charlie Austin.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is making a beat-the-deadline move and they are hoping to complete a deal for the 26-year-old.

Crystal Palace is also keen, but they have been unable to offload players to help finance a move.

Bournemouth have got cash to spend and Howe is being backed in the market and he hopes to bring in other reinforcements, including another striker. Lewis Grabban and Glenn Murray remain possibilities.

QPR are expecting to sell Austin and Mirror Sport revealed on Saturday that they were bracing themselves to also offload Sandro, Matt Phillips, Junior Hoilett and Rob Green.

The 26-year-old English striker had a sublime last season in Premier League and is in a clinical form in Championship this season. He scored 18 league goals last season for QPR who were relegated and now playing in the second tier of English football and scored 4 goals in 4 games. 

Even Manchester United and Arsenal were seemed to be interested in Austin as they both needed to add strikers in their squad. 

But United are set to sign French sensation Anthony Martial but Arsenal are still looking for a striker.

So, we may see the striker moving to Emirates also which will be a deadline day shocker.
