Chelsea transfer gossip: Speculation over Wilson continues

The transfer stories in Monday’s newspapers involving Chelsea…

Bournemouth would sell Callum Wilson for £75m, the Daily Star declare.

It follows reports that Chelsea are willing to pay £50m for the England striker if they are unable to bring in Gonzalo Higuain, who is currently on a season-long loan at AC Milan from Juventus.

Bournemouth have insisted that Wilson is not for sale during this month’s transfer window.

The Star claim that “behind closed doors” the south-coast club say they would listen to offers of £75m.

Meanwhile, Wolves are apparently also interested in Wilson, the Birmingham Mail reports.
