Newcastle United are considering a move for AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in order to solve their injury woes, according to the Daily Mail.
The Magpies have been hit with an injury dilemma of late, with Dwight Gayle recently picking up a knee injury in pre-season ahead of the new Premier League campaign.
Joelinton and Yoshinori Muto have been absent from their training camp in York, with Gayle’s injury leaving Andy Carroll as their only out-and-out available option up top.

Gayle’s injury could potentially see Steve Bruce making a move for AFC Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson, who is among the strikers being considered by the club.
The likes of Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Fulham have been linked with Wilson following Bournemouth’s relegation from the Premier League, and a move away looks likely this summer.
The 28-year-old has scored 67 goals in 187 games for Bournemouth, and netted nine times in all competitions last season as well as chipping in with three assists.
It almost seems inevitable that Wilson will be on his way out of the Vitality Stadium this summer, and it’s no wonder Premier League sides are taking an interest in him.
Wilson has been a top player in the Premier League for a couple of seasons now, and the four-time England international is fully deserving of a move to the top-flight.
You do worry about Bournemouth, though, as plenty of their key players are leaving the club which is an issue. They need to replace them really carefully.
