Boyd is currently plying his trade at Rapid Vienna and he has impressed for the Austrian side since arriving from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
The 22-year-old scored 13 goals last term and he has scored two goals already this season, including in the Europa League qualifying win over Asteras Tripolis.
A number of English clubs are thought to be keeping tabs on the pacy forward, but Bournemouth are hoping to steal a match on them by luring him to Dean Court.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is in the market for a new striker before the transfer window closes and Boyd is thought to figure highly on his wanted list.
Boyd would have no issues winning a work permit as he has dual nationality after being born in Germany before moving to America.
