Since gaining promotion to the Premier League with Bournemouth, striker Callum Wilson has had to endure some very difficult periods in English football’s top flight.
The 27-year-old has picked up some serious injuries which have seen him miss a lot of games in recent seasons.
However, Wilson has appeared to put those setbacks behind him with the Bournemouth man currently enjoying a Premier League campaign where he has managed to reach the double-figure mark for goals.
Now an England international, Wilson had been linked with a big-money move to Chelsea, really putting into perspective how good he has been this term and the bargain Bournemouth got when they signed him.
And while Wilson is probably not worth that sort of money yet, it is not hard to see why Chelsea targeted the former Coventry man.
In this current campaign alone, Wilson has shown enough signs to suggest he could have been the player to help the Blues with their goalscoring woes.
He has a real poacher’s instinct in the box, while his pace would have also been a massive boost when looking at how some of Chelsea’s attacks breakdown due to Olivier Giroud and Gonzalo Higuain’s incapability to run onto fast-paced through balls.
What is Chelsea’s loss, though, is obviously Bournemouth’s gain. For £3m, Wilson remains a bargain even after all of the injuries and a player the Cherries are lucky to have.
