West Ham United to battle Chelsea and Liverpool for goal-scoring machine


West Ham United have joined the race to sign Queens Park Rangers' striker Charlie Austin.

The 25-year-old was one of the most impressive players in last season's Premier League, scoring 18 of QPR's 42 goals in the domestic league.

He scored 117 goals in 224 games in all competitions in his career and is expected to leave the club after they were relegated to the Championship.

Meanwhile, former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton has urged new boss Slaven Bilic to make a move for the player.

"If it was me in charge at West Ham, I'd go out straight away and put the money down QPR want for Charlie Austin," Ashton is quoted as saying the Daily Star.

"He scored 18 Premier League goals last season in a team which was struggling.

"I know what it's like to play in teams where you're not playing every week and it's tough. You only get a few chances and he's so clinical."
