Eddie Howe Reiterates Desire To Keep Chelsea Target At Bournemouth



Callum Wilson

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has insisted that striker Callum Wilson is not for sale and that the Cherries is keen to keep the player at the club beyond the current transfer window.

Callum Wilson has been in superb form for the South Coast club this season and that has attracted the interest of fellow Premier League clubs.

Everton, West Ham United and Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for the recently capped England international striker.

Callum Wilson made his debut for England against the United States of America in November in what was an international friendly.

He made a scoring debut to wrap up a 3-0 victory over the Americans.

The 26-year-old has scored nine goals and five assists in 20 games for Bournemouth in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea identified him as a possible transfer addition to boost the problematic striker situation at the club but it seems like the former European champions have turned their focus on Gonzalo Higuain.

Argentine striker Higuain is on the verge of joining the Blues on a short-term loan deal from Italian Serie A giants Juventus until the end of the season with the option to buy him permanently this summer.
