Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur striker Dimitar Berbatov is reportedly being lined up by Bournemouth.
The 34 year-old is available on a free transfer after leaving AS Monaco at the beginning of the month.
According to talkSPORT, Eddie Howe would like to explore the possibility of bringing the Bulgarian to Dean Court in order to add valuable experience and quality to his newly-promoted squad.
Berbatov scored 95 goals in his seven-and-a-half years in the Premier League – 27 at Spurs, 49 at United and 10 at Fulham before leaving for France in January 2014.
The Cherries currently have Yann Kermorgant, Callum Wilson, Tokelo Rantie and Joshua King in their forward ranks – none of whom have a Premier League goal to their name.
Bournemouth begin their season with a visit of Aston Villa.
