Chelsea surprisingly linked with Callum Wilson
Chelsea target Callum Wilson from Bournemouth to boost their attacking options.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Chelsea are surprisingly linked with Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.
The England international joined Bournemouth from Coventry City for a fee in the region of 3.7 million euros in July 2014. His contract expires in the summer of 2022.
Callum Wilson made 128 appearances across all competitions for Bournemouth, scoring 50 goals and supplying 22 assists in return.
Wilson has represented England at Under-21 level, winning one cap.
His performances have seen him become the target of many Premier League clubs including Chelsea.
Maurizio Sarri wants to sign a new striker and Callum Wilson is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He will reportedly be handed a huge transfer kitty this winter and the Bournemouth striker is thought to be among the manager’s priorities.
According to The Sun, “Wilson’s start to the campaign has led for the forward to be called into Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the games against the USA and Croatia named on Thursday. Chelsea have been closely monitoring his progress for months and have seen enough to potentially make their move in January claim the Mirror. Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud who is yet to score this term as his main striker options. But neither offer the pace and directness of Wilson which could be a vital addition if they are to maintain a title challenge this season.”

Bournemouth would be wise to keep the England international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.
Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Chelsea.
Chelsea fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
