The 23-year-old arrived from Coventry City last summer after some excellent form in Sky Bet League One.

Wilson was bought to replace Lewis Grabban, and ended up firing the Cherries to promotion with 23 goals, in what was a sensational campaign for Eddie Howe’s men.

The majority of the Premier League are chasing him, with a total of 12 clubs now after his signature including Chelsea, Tottenham and now Arsenal. 

Arsene Wenger has seen the striker as the perfect back up for Frenchman Olivier Giroud, and Arsenal’s chief scout Steve Rowely is very keen on him.

Eddie Howe is keen on keeping one of his best players and hopes he’ll sign a new deal at the club. He wants to partner him with an experienced striker, with names like Rickie Lambert, Obafemi Martins and Dimitar Berbatov all suggested as targets.

The Cherries finished top of the tree this year in the Sky Bet Championship, and accumulated a sizeable 90 points this season.
