It’s the story of every transfer window at Goodison Park. Are they going to buy a Romelu Lukaku replacement yet? Well, Callum Wilson certainly has the quality to bring the goals the club needs and it could push them to threaten the top six.
The Bournemouth striker has scored 15 goals and made 10 assists in all competitions this season, so what a campaign he’s had. It’s not gone unnoticed and the Sun as recently as 3 days ago believe Everton are eying up a summer move for him.
He’d certainly be better than any attacker the Toffees have at the moment, with their stand-out forward being Richarlison, but he’s not an out-and-out goal-scorer either. Fans have grown frustrated over the lack of a decent striker, but Wilson can be that man.
At 27-years-old he’s hitting his prime and can head the attack for the next five years if he continues his current vein of form. An England international, after all, and that’s not something to be taken lightly these days, as it was in the past. Indeed, the consistent flow of goals could see Everton soar up the table and even push the top six for the European spots.
That’s the dream for the club, and that’ll be where Wilson wants to be too. He’s rated at £22.5m on Transfermarkt and has a contract until 2022, so he won’t be cheap. If Everton want to reach the top though, they have to spend the cash to back it up.
Wilson is one of the league’s best strikers and Everton are looking for just that. They need goals and he’ll give them it as a guarantee. They have the potential to fight it out with the top six if they make a deal happen.
