AFC Bournemouth are keen on Preston North End forward Callum Robinson, according to journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

The Premier League side are in the hunt for signings who fit their style of play as they look to further bolster their options.

Robinson, who is 23 years-old, has emerged as a potential target for the Cherries after impressing in the Championship even though he is currently ruled out with a hamstring injury.

He has chipped in with eight goals so far this season and Alex Neil’s side will face a battle to hold onto him in the future with Bournemouth looking to pounce.

Robinson joined Preston on a permanent deal in July 2016 and has since played 106 games for them, scoring 26 goals in all competitions.

He started his career at Aston Villa and rose through the youth ranks at Villa Park. He made his first-team debut for the Midlands side in a League Cup tie against Tottenham Hotspur in September 2013. He went onto play four more times for their senior side and also enjoyed loan spells out at Preston and Bristol City.

Robinson represented England at U16. U17, U19 and U20 level as a youngster but switched his allegiance to the Republic of Ireland in March this year, who he is eligible for through his grandmother. He has since made four caps for at senior level.

Preston will be bracing themselves for interest from Bournemouth in their key man and will be hoping they can keep him at Deepdale for as long as possible. Losing Robinson would be a real blow for Neil’s side.
