Chelsea transfer news: Maurizio Sarri eyeing Callum Wilson move after hot Bournemouth form
CHELSEA have reportedly been regularly scouting Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson ahead of a potential January transfer. The Cherries hitman has been in great form this season, scoring seven goals and providing four assists for Eddie Howe’s men. Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri sbobet24
has himself started life in English football well, with his new team still unbeaten in all competitions.
The Blues sit second in the Premier League, just two points behind champions Manchester City. Despite the healthy outlook, Sarri’s side have been reliant on Eden Hazard for goals, although Alvaro Morata has picked up his recent form. The Spaniard has scored five goals in his last six games but Sarri revealed after the win over Crystal Palace that the forward has suffered from bouts of mental fragility.

and his performances are said to have alerted England boss Gareth Southgate. Indeed, no English striker has contributed to more goals than Wilson this term and this is testament to the player who has suffered serious injury in recent times. The striker has had to recover from two serious knee ligament injuries in the last three years, but now looks fitter than ever.
According to the Mirror, Chelsea could firm up their interest in Wilson as soon as January if he continues to impress. The 26-year-old signed a new long-term contract in the summer and continued his recent purple patch with a goal in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United. The strike was his 50th for the club since he joined from Coventry in 2014. “It’s nice to make that achievement. sbobet24
I should have had it a lot sooner,” he said after netting.
