According to a report from Football.London journalist Alasdair Gold, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson could be one of the most likely attacking targets for Tottenham this summer, but the Cherries may command a fee of around £17m for his services.
Indeed, as per Gold, Tottenham are ‘intent’ on fixing glaring issues through transfer business and have pinpointed the centre-forward position as a key area which needs to be addressed.
Only superstar Harry Kane stands out as Jose Mourinho’s natural centre-forward option, with a plethora of attacking targets being mentioned as players who can provide suitable back up.
Should Spurs sign Wilson?
Yes, good back up
Nope, not close to Spurs' level
Wilson, Chris Wood, Josh King and Darwin Nunez were all mentioned as being linked, as per football,london, but the four-cap England international‘s ties to a potential Spurs move appear to hold the most substance.
Described as somebody who could ‘fit the bill’ with his proven Premier League experience, appearances for the Three Lions and his obvious status as a homegrown player, Wilson’s only drawback appears to be a slight slump in form when compared to his stellar 2018/19 campaign. Over last season, he bagged just over half of his previous season’s return, going from 14 league goals in 2018/19 to eight last term (WhoScored).
Described as ‘outstanding’ by his former manager Eddie Howe, the 28-year-old’s wealth of ability and experience, tucked behind a lack of form, could hopefully come shining through as Daniel Levy reportedly weighs up a move.
