Bournemouth are planning a move for Fulham striker Ross McCormack, according to the Daily Mail.

The Cherries are keen to add some more firepower to their squad in January, as they look to remain in the Premier League for another season. They have suffered with injures, especially to main striker Callum Wilson, and they will certainly be on the lookout for a new forward.

Eddie Howe has reportedly already made an enquiry about the availability of the Fulham man and a move could be agreed in early January.

The Cottagers would usually be very reluctant to part with a key player like McCormack but the club has been placed under a transfer embargo, meaning they will need to sell before they can buy when the winter transfer window opens.

Therefore, several players could be set to leave Craven Cottage and if they can sell the 29-year old on for the £11m they originally bought him for, then they may be forced into doing business as it would bring in a substantial amount of money.

The question is, will Bournemouth be willing to pay that much for the Scottish striker? It’s quite a large amount for a Championship striker but bear in mind he has managed to find the back of the net 14 times in 26 games so far this season and if he could continue that form in the Premier League, then he would be worth every penny.
