Bournemouth have had a £2m bid for Kayden Jackson rejected by Ipswich Town, Football Insider can reveal.

The Cherries have set their sights on the 26-year-old striker as a potential Callum Wilson replacement.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Ipswich have knocked back Bournemouth’s offer as they hold out for a higher fee.

This site revealed in July that Jackson has turned down a new Portman Road deal ahead of his contract expiring next summer.

This has attracted interest from multiple Championship big hitters, including Stoke City and Birmingham as well as newly-promoted second-tier outfit Coventry City.

Bournemouth are cash-rich following the sale of Wilson, who joined Newcastle United yesterday for a fee of around £20m.

Jackson was one of Paul Lambert’s standout performers last season, with 11 goals and seven assists in 32 League One matches.

His form, which helped Ipswich to a 10th-placed finish, has attracted the attention of teams who believe that the former Accrington Stanley hitman can make the step up.

This was a far cry from his form for the Tractor Boys during the 2018-19 campaign, 14 of which came among the starting XI, when he scored just three goals as the club were relegated.

Jackson arrived at Ipswich in a reported £1million move back in 2018 and signed a three-year deal with an additional one-year clause the club can trigger.

His move to Ipswich came after he fired Accrington Stanley to the League Two title with 16 goals.
