The Coventry Telegraph has revealed that Coventry striker Callum Wilson is a step closer to leaving the club after two bids for the player were accepted.
The Sky Blues have given Wilson permission to speak to both Norwich City and Bournemouth after bids of more than £3million were received. Wolves and Brentford have also been interested in the striker.
Coventry have always stated that they wish to keep Wilson at the club, but the bid received is higher than the player’s true valuation after just one season of first team football in which he scored 22 goals. The club also doesn’t wish to keep an unhappy player who could easily double or triple his current wages elsewhere.
Bournemouth have lined up Wilson to replace Lewis Grabban who left The Cherries to join transfer rivals Norwich at the beginning of last month. They also have the financial backing with the club set to receive around £6million in sell-on fees from the sale of Adam Lallana from Southampton to Liverpool.
Norwich also have money to spend due to The Canaries receiving parachute payment following their relegation from the Premier League.
The player now has to decide which club can help him continue his development over the coming seasons.
