The club eye for QPR forward Charlie Austin and Atletico Madrid’s Raul Jimenez.

Gold and manager Slaven Bilic are also eager to join Tottenham in the race for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.

Gold told Sky Sports: “We are looking for a striker, that is our key. We’ve been very unfortunate in losing Enner Valencia.
