Everton should move for Callum Wilson

According to The Mirror, Chelsea are considering make a move to sign in-form Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in the January transfer window.

What’s the word?

Wilson has begun the new Premier League season in scintillating form for the Cherries. Seven goals from just 13 appearances in all competitions this season sees him rank amongst the most potent forwards in the country at this time.

Wilson’s form is reflected in the south coast club’s lofty league positions, with Eddie Howe’s side currently flying high in sixth place.

Of course, Wilson’s form was always going to attract admirers and it looks as though Bournemouth ought to be preparing themselves for a winter window spent warding off interest in the 26-year-old. 

Before Chelsea can move for the Englishman, though, Everton would be wise to swoop in for Wilson’s signature themselves.

The perfect candidate

Richarlison is currently doing a fine job of leading the line for the Toffees, but if Marco Silva could bring in a prolific centre-forward then the Brazilian could return to his favoured wide berth.

However, with £27 million flop Cenk Tosun the club’s senior striker, Silva has little choice but to persist with Richarlison rather than rely upon the out-of-form 27-year-old.

Everton should cut their losses on Tosun and focus upon bringing a new, proven striker to Goodison Park as soon as possible. Wilson would be the ideal candidate to take up this role on Merseyside.

What do you think, Everton fans – would you be excited to welcome Wilson to Goodison Park in January?
