Southampton are letting him go. He is a proven goal scorer and better then we ready have. I think we should be going in for him... thoughts?

It will be a brave team who signs him given his injuries.

Has proved himself to be a good finisher but hasn't got that extra burst of pace so is not one to run away from defenders.Good positional sense and movement and the ability to stay calm when a chance presents itself.But of course he has had his injury woes.

We are looking for strikers and our relegation rivals Southampton have sold Gabbiadini and are now looking to offload Austin.

Would he improve our forward line? Yes when fit.

Are we in a financial position to pay the transfer fee, pay high wages on a player with ever decreasing resale value? No.

So I can't see us being interested.

One that Dougie should be looking at a proven goal scorer and gives 100% every time he plays could be a good partner for Christian Benteke NO BRAINER ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️
Please sign him up ❤️💙🦅👍🏻

I would love us to have Austin but his wages are very big indeed.

Doubt this will happen but hope I'm wrong.

No thanks. Another one for the treatment room. And he's already turned us down twice in previous windows

Letting him go is a simplified way of saying it. I'm sure he'd cost more than 10 million. Not one for the future at his age as those 10 million would never be recouped. His wages are also big.

Would not be my first option over a young 21-24 year old player like Aaron Leya Iseka or Habib Diallo or MOussa Kone who would cost up to 5 million and be on my lower wages, but Austin is not a horrible center forward overall.
