Tottenham are yet to make a move for AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson with the Cherries reportedly holding out for a big fee, according to the Daily Star.
Jose Mourinho wants to sign a new striker to compete with Harry Kane – a problem that every manager has had to contend with thanks to the England man’s exceptional form in front of goal.
Finding a player willing to play second fiddle but also sharp enough to take chances when they do get an opportunity is a rate commodity, but it’s one Spurs are on the hunt for this summer.
And, according to the report, the Lilywhites are weighing up a move for Wilson this window, though they are yet to truly commit to an offer.
Bournemouth might well have been relegated from the Premier League last season but they are a club that is very well run indeed and they are not desperate for cash.
That, therefore, means they can hold out for decent-sized fees for their best players and it could be what puts the likes of Spurs off from making a move.
We’ll have to see what happens here, then, but there can be no doubt that Wilson is good enough to be back in the Premier League.
