Championship club standing firm on £30m asking price for Tottenham target

Wilson would be a solid backup for Harry Kane at Tottenham

Bournemouth will not allow Callum Wilson to leave on the cheap

According to the Daily Mail, EFL Championship side Bournemouth will not not budge from their £30m valuation for star striker Callum Wilson, who is a target for Tottenham Hotspur.

It is no secret that the club struggled for goals when the England captain was out with an injury for a lengthy period. This hurt our chances of finishing the season in the top four. So, it goes without saying that a new striker is a must for the club before the season kicks off. More so, considering that Troy Parrott has been loaned out to Millwall.

And, as per the report, Wilson is one of the targets that Mourinho and Tottenham are looking at, to bolster the centre-forward department.

The Englishman has been with the Cherries since 2014 and has been a consistent source of goals for the South Coast outfit during his time at the club. He enjoyed his most prolific campaign in 2018/19, banging in 14 league goals, while setting up 10 more.

Wilson did, however, fail to hit the same heights this past season, finishing with 8 league goals in 35 games. Nevertheless, given his proven track record in the Premier League, the four-time capped England international would be a fine backup for Kane.

However, Bournemouth are demanding a transfer fee of £30m for their star striker, which could prove to be a stumbling block. This is because Mourinho is working on a tight budget and is looking for bargain deals in the market. (h/t Daily Mail)

With Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Joe Hart already arriving, we have made a solid start to the transfer window. A new striker should be next on the agenda, while we must also look to bolster our defence before the season kicks off next month.
