Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is reportedly on West Ham’s United shortlist this summer along with the likes of Maxi Gomez and Salomon Rondon, according to a report published by 90min.
The Hammers have be set for an overhaul of their attacker options this summer. Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll have both already left the club, while it appears that Javier Hernandez’s future is unclear and Marko Arnautovic wants out.
The report added that West Ham have made signing Wilson a priority.
The Englishman would be a good signing for Manuel Pellegrini’s Hammers side and could help the club to challenge for European football next season.
Currently England’s second-choice striker behind Harry Kane, Wilson went on to score an impressive 14 Premier League goals from 30 appearances last season, whilst also contributing nine assists.
He has the ability to combine well with West Ham playmakers Pablo Fornals, Manuel Lanzini, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson, in a forward line that could make the Hammers attack difficult to contain for even the top sides in the Premier League.
Wilson will however not be an easy player to acquire. Bournemouth will not be in a rush to part ways with him as he is one of their most-important players and other clubs are also bound to display interest this summer due to his exploits last season.
For West Ham to land the impressive striker, breaking the club’s transfer record would surely be inevitable – but the expenditure could be well worth it if Wilson scores 15-20 Premier League goals next season.
