Report: Fulham join race to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson

The hotshot is a wanted man.

Fulham have joined the race to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson during the current transfer window, according to The Telegraph.

It was previously reported that the Cherries want to recoup £30 million for the star talisman with West Ham, Everton and Crystal Palace all interested (Daily Mail).

Wilson scored nine goals last season and registered three assists but his future at the Cherries looks questionable following the club’s relegation.

The 28-year-old has been in brilliant form during the last few seasons, earning international honours thanks to his efforts on the south coast.

In 126 Premier League appearances he has scored 41 goals and registered 16 assists, collecting four England caps along the way.

Fulham will set about trying to bolster their ranks this summer following their promotion to the Premier League last season.

 

The Cottagers defeated Brentford in the Play-Off Final to win promotion at the first time of asking under Scott Parker.

The challenge for the boss is to try and establish the club as a top-flight outfit, having lasted just a single season following their last promotion.

Wilson will have plenty of interested parties thanks largely to his goalscoring ability but also due to his work ethic and attributes when it comes to operating as a team player.

TBR View – Wilson could complement Fulham nicely

Fulham already have Aleksandar Mitrovic in their attacking ranks and signing Wilson would give Parker a duo to be feared.

The devastating Serbian performer fired in 26 goals last season and based on that he will almost certainly be a figurehead next time around.

Wilson would only further enhance the Cottagers prospects of scoring plenty of goals and he could be the difference between surviving in the division during 2020/21.
