Premier League side AFC Bournemouth are preparing a £50,000-a-week contract to tempt Antoine Semenyo from Bristol City, reports The Sun.
The Cherries are finding it hard to land players because they are near the drop zone.
But they could get Ghana forward Semenyo, 23, for £15 million.
Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil is on the hunt for attacking reinforcements with the club teetering on the edge of the relegation zone.
And he believes Semenyo could be the man to help keep the Cherries in the Premier League come the end of the season.
Bournemouth are yet to make any signings this month.
They are also keen on bringing Arnaut Danjuma back from Spanish side Villarreal but they will want a guaranteed £35m deal for the Dutch dazzler they signed from the Cherries for £21m 18 monts ago.
Former boss Scott Parker signed six players last summer, including Ryan Fredericks, Joe Rothwell, Marcus Tavernier, Marcos Senesi and Jack Stephens on loan.
But they couldn’t prevent the Cherries’ struggles in the league.
Bournemouth have since gone on to win just four out of 19 games.
