West Ham simply must sign Wilson amid talk of a new Bournemouth deal

Wilson is a key player for Bournemouth, and last term he caught the eye with some brilliant displays on the south coast.

The star helped himself to 15 goals and 10 assists in all comptitions, and his form earned him a first call-up to the England squad back in November.

West Ham have been linked with a move for Wilson previously this summer, but it has now become paramount for the club to swoop given recent developments.

 

TBR’s view

With Marko Arnautovic sold and the Maxi Gomez pursuit ending in failure, West Ham are in desperate need of a quality striker.

£40,000-a-week ace Wilson (Spotrac) is about the enter his prime years and would be a fantastic addition for Manuel Pellegrini.

The star has great pace, knows how to finish and is also impressively creative.

He has Premier League pedigree, and the potential to become a brilliant striker for the Hammers – something that has been very rare for the club in recent years.

The Evening Standard claim the Irons can afford him thanks to the Arnautovic sale, but Pellegrini and Mario Husillos must act fast before Bournemouth tie him down.
