Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Southampton are all keeping tabs on Queens Park Rangers' striker, Charlie Austin. All three clubs are looking to add extra firepower next season, and his performances so far this campaign have seen him become one of the best forwards in the Premier League.

Austin is 25-years-old and has had an excellent first season in England's top flight. He has scored 15 goals in 25 appearances and is the fourth top goalscorer in the league. He's been linked with a call-up to the England national squad and deserves a place as he has scored many vital goals for QPR.

Tottenham are keen to add another striker to their squad with Harry Kane their only reliable goal scorer at present with Emanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado struggling for form. They have had goals coming from Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, but they are short of centre forwards and have been for a while now.

Liverpool have Daniel Sturridge back from injury and firing once more, but they've had to use Raheem Sterling in the striker role in his absence, due to the misfiring Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini. With these three players linked with summer departures, Brendan Rodgers is going back in the market for players.

The Saints started the season with Graziano Pellè on top of his game.

The Italian was a goal machine and helped them up to second place in the league, but his goals have severely dried up and their form has dipped because of it. Charlie Austin certainly fits the bill, and a move to St Mary's will be very appealing to him.

Rumours suggest that QPR are looking to double his wages to £50,000-a-week, but if they fail to regain their Premier League status next term, he will almost certainly look to get a big money move away.

It's a promising time for England's striker right now as he, Kane, Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge are all finding the net on a regular basis. Whichever team can strike a deal for him, they will know they have a proven goal scorer on their hands so the Hoops will be demanding serious money for his services, should he want to leave.
