According to a report from the Sun, Cardiff are lining up a £5 million summer swoop for Bournemouth midfield ace Dan Gosling, as Neil Warnock looks to add some Premier League experience to his squad.

The 28-year-old joined the Cherries on a free transfer in the summer of 2014, and he has gone on to make 123 appearances in all competitions for Eddie Howe's men.

The Bluebirds shocked fans and pundits alike after earning promotion from the Championship last season, but they will undoubtedly need to add further quality to their squad, if they are to avoid relegation this season.

Good signing for Cardiff?

Gosling is a hard working midfielder - a prerequisite for any Neil Warnock signing, but he also possesses impressive technical ability, and is a competent passer of the football.

For just £5 million, Gosling would surely prove to be a real coup for Cardiff.
