Eddie Howe has made it clear he plans to keep Callum Wilson and Lys Mousset.

Chelsea assistant boss Gianfranco Zola effectively confirmed ahead of their Carabao Cup quarter-final win against the Cherries that the Blues are interested in England striker Wilson.

And West London Sport revealed ahead of the game at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea won 1-0, that Fulham want to sign forward Mousset.

However, when asked after his team’s defeat if Wilson could be sold in January, the Bournemouth manager said: “Not from my perspective, no.”

Mousset, meanwhile, had a rare outing up front with Wilson, and Howe said he was impressed with the Frenchman before adding: “He’s a big part of our future.”
