The Cherries are in the Transfer Tavern tonight, and they might not like what our landlord has to say about Callum Wilson.
Despite his normal ruthless attitude towards certain aspects of football, even our landlord doesn’t like saying this but Eddie Howe should really look to sell Callum Wilson once he is fit.
Why? Because he won’t stay fit. Callum Wilson looked like he was going to be the man to lead Bournemouth’s front line for years to come in their new Premier League era, and for a time, he was.
The talented forward even scored the club’s first ever Premier League goal in a 4-3 win over West Ham.
Wilson was on top of the world as he managed five top flight goals in the opening seven games but then it all went wrong.
Mere weeks into the historic season, Wilson ruptured his cruciate ligament and was out for practically the rest of the season, returning with six league games to go and failing to score in any of them.
Fast forward to last season and everyone thought that Wilson would now have the chance to shine and although he wasn’t scoring as many goals as people would have hoped, he was staying fit and managed six league goals in 20 games.
Not terrible considering he’d come back from such a bad injury. But then he got injured again, he ruptured his cruciate ligament again and is still recovering now.
Wilson looks doomed do become another Jack Wilshere case and as much as our landlord hates to admit it, Bournemouth don’t have the funds to keep a player like that around.
Realistically speaking, Howe should look to move him on when he is fit again or potentially look for mutual termination of his contract.
Although the latter seems very unlikely.
