The Clarets are understood to be keeping a close eye on 18-year-old Bournemouth striker Sam Vokes according to the Lancashire Telegraph

The local paper also states however that there hasn’t been any contact with the Cherries about the player.

Vokes has made 45 appearances for Bournemouth since making his debut against Nottingham Forest in December 2006, scoring 14 goals.

The Lymington-born, 18 year old striker is already a Wales Under 21 international, making his debut for Wales in Feb 2007 against Northern Ireland U21. He also scored after only 36 seconds in their 4-0 victory that day.

It is not clear if the Clarets are tracking this player with a view to a permanent move in the Summer or whether they might be interested in a loan for the rest of the season, possibly with a view to a permanent deal.
