Callum Wilson is starting to attract attention from the Premier League’s big boys. As reported by The Mirror, Chelsea are considering a move for the player in January.
The reason why is clear. Wilson has been in fine form. His seven goals and five assists from 13 games have seen him catch the eye at Bournemouth and an England call-up is now looking likely for the 26-year-old.
Unfortunately, injuries have often halted his progress since joining Bournemouth. But now he is flying and it must be a sickener for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Bournemouth had to fight hard to bring in the player back in the summer of 2014. He had been thriving for Coventry City and plenty of teams were keen on his signature. Wolves were said to be in a bidding war for the player by the Birmingham Mail. Considering he was a Midlands boy, Wolves might have felt they had the edge.
However, Wilson decided he would move to the South Coast in a deal reported to be in the region of £3 million. He fired Bournemouth to the Premier League and Wolves were left disappointed.
Now the two teams are both in the Premier League and Wolves are crying out for a free-scoring striker like Wilson.
He is now valued in the region of at least £25 million and Wolves would no doubt love it if he was bagging the goals at Molineux and not Dean Court.
