Cape Town - QPR's English striker Charlie Austin will reportedly cost any interested club £15 million during this summer's transfer window.
The Express report that QPR have set their price-tag for Charlie Austin at £15 million.
Newcastle United reportedly lead the race to snap up the striker, who shot to stardom by scoring 18 goals for QPR last season.
Austin has attracted interested from Newcastle, Southampton, Liverpool and Chelsea but a move to join Steve McClaren seems the most likely at this stage.
Liverpool have signed Danny Ings from Burnley, Chelsea are set to land Radamel Falcao and Southampton have just added Juanmi to their ranks, leaving Newcastle in pole position.
A stumbling block for any potential Austin move to join the Magpies will be the price set for his services.
Newcastle are unwilling to match QPR's valuation and may instead opt to bring Andy Carroll back to the club this summer.
