West Ham reportedly join race for Bournemouth star; will cost more than £20m

West Ham United have become the latest side to join the race for Callum Wilson, with Sky Sports reporting that David Moyes is battling Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur for the Bournemouth star.

Cherries fans will be desperately hoping to see as much of their squad stay at the Vitality Stadium as possible this summer following their relegation.

Wilson is one of a number of players who has proved that he is of Premier League quality. Unsurprisingly therefore, there are plenty of sides looking at offering him the chance to stay in the top flight this summer.

Sky Sports reports that Irons, Spurs and Magpies all want the 28-year-old, who ended the past season with eight league goals.

The report notes that Bournemouth are looking for a fee of more than £20 million for Wilson. So it will be interesting to see whether any of his admirers decide to meet his asking price.

 

TBR View: West Ham should make sure they act quickly

West Ham surely need to strengthen their striker options this summer. Sebastien Haller endured a tough first year at the London Stadium, and the Irons were grateful for the goals of Michail Antonio late on in the campaign.

Signing Wilson for around £20 million arguably has the potential to be an inspired piece of business. He boasts a good record at the highest level, and it appears that any injury problems are largely behind him.

They certainly risk ruing missing out if Wilson ultimately joins Newcastle or Spurs this summer.
