Six goals, five assists: Everton must consider £25m former target Callum Wilson

The Bournemouth striker was linked with Everton in March.

In March it was reported by The Sun that Everton and West Ham United were hoping to bring in Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson. The report claimed that the Cherries were ready to demand £25 million for the player. The news was something of a surprise, considering the striker’s previous injury record.

However, six months later, and Everton should certainly be reconsidering a move for the player.

Wilson has been sensational for Bournemouth at the start of the current campaign. His record of six goals and five assists in 12 games this season is sensational.

Everton, meanwhile, appear to be on the right track under Marco Silva. However, they clearly lack a centre-forward who can score regularly in the Premier League.

 

Richarlison operates better from the left whilst Cenk Tosun is not looking up to the task.

Wilson certainly does. His pace, strength and finishing ability make him a fearsome Premier League striker. Considering his current form, an England call-up does not look far away and Everton must be ready to swoop in the winter.

The price of £25 million may have gone up in the six months since they were first linked with his signature. However, given the amount Everton have shown they are willing to spend to push back against the Premier League elite, going higher should not be an issue.
