Report: Everton weigh up £35million move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson

Everton are reportedly considering a bid for Bournemouth centre-forward Callum Wilson.

According to the Sun, the Toffees are planning a £35million offer for the England international this summer.

It is understood though that the Merseyside club may need to offload first to raise funds and Idrissa Gueye could be sold as part of that.

The report details that Everton boss Marco Silva has identified Wilson as the perfect man to lead their attack next season.

However, they will need to raise funds and could be open to selling their key midfielder Gueye for around £45million, with Paris Saint-Germain keen on him back in January.

TBR’s View:

 

Wilson is now a senior England international that has been included in the squad for this summer’s Nations League and would be a great addition for Everton.

The striker netted 15 goals and supplied 10 assists in just 33 games across all competitions this season.

He’s a well balanced attacker that has the pace to trouble defenders in behind, while he’s a clinical finisher and can hold the ball up too.

But the potential arrival of Wilson shouldn’t come at the expense of one of their most consistent performers in recent years.

Defensive midfielder Gueye has got back to his very best this season when it comes to screening the back four and surely Everton could raise cash to sign from Wilson from signing fringe or loan players instead.
