Bournemouth turn attention to MLS ace as backup to injured star

Bournemouth are considering a move to sign Bradley Wright-Phillips on loan from New York Red Bulls to replace injured star Callum Wilson, Mirror reports.

The 30-year-old has been impressing in the MLS since his arrival from Charlton Athletic back in 2013, scoring 45 goals from 73 appearances so far.

Manager Eddie Howe has been dealt a huge blow after Wilson suffered a serious knee injury and is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

With the MLS campaign already coming to a close, the Cherries will be hoping they can lure the forward back to England during the offseason.

Wright-Phillips previously enjoyed spells at Manchester City, Southampton, Plymouth Argyle, Brentford, and Charlton ahead of his switch to the Unites States.

Apart from him, the Premier League outfits are also said to have made an attempt to try and lure Queens Park Rangers star Charlie Austin back into the English top flight.
