Hammers in the battle to sign €30m-rated Chelsea long-term target
Hammers in the battle to sign Bournemouth centre-forward Callum Wilson and ready to compete with Chelsea and Tottenham for the footballer. The English club have problems in the attack as Lucas Perez joined Deportivo, Marko Arnautovic linked with several clubs, Chicharito and Andy Carroll already up to 30 and they need replacement.
England international is the best option in this situation as he had a fantastic season and paid attention. Manuel Pellegrini will do everything to sign him this summer, but it won’t be easy as Blues and Spurs also preparing to make an offer during the transfer window. There will be a clash for the player, and his price could become much more.
Wilson joined the English club from Coventry in 2014 with a £4m deal. He is one of the best strikers in the Premier League and a key figure for the club. In this season, Callum played 33 games, scored 15 goals and made ten assists in all tournament. It is an impressive result, and he can do much more with top-class partners.
English centre-forward has contracted with the Cherries until 2022, and his release clause is nearly £30m. He regularly plays in the national team line-up which is already a significant achievement for the footballer. Probably the 27-year-old striker will accept the correct offer from the Chilean manager.
West Ham United added several players last summer like Issa Diop from Toulouse, Felipe Anderson from Lazio, Andrii Yarmolenko from Borussia Dortmund, Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea, Carlos Sanchez from Fiorentina and Fabian Balbuena from Corinthians.
