“Callum Wilson is set to spend at least six months sidelined after scans confirmed a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.”
He now joins Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings who have also picked up earlier long-term injuries as manager Eddie Howe will be hoping his other forwards are ready to fill the void.
He still has a number of players available, with Tokelo Rantie, Glenn Murray, Yann Kermorgant, and Joshua King all relishing the chance to lead the lines for their club.
The Cherries are currently 16th in the Premier League after registering two wins, one draw, and four losses, from their first seven fixtures.
