Chelsea are reportedly eyeing up a potential swoop for Bournemouth centre-forward Callum Wilson.

According to the Mirror, the Blues are tracking the 26-year-old and could even firm up interest as early as the January transfer window if he continues to impress in the Premier League.

Wilson has made a stunning start to the campaign and has outperformed Chelsea’s current first-choice striker Alvaro Morata.

The Bournemouth speed machine has made 13 appearances across all competition so far this season, scoring seven goals and supplying five assists.


Many are tipping him for a first ever call-up to the senior England squad and he’s currently proving a nightmare for top-flight defences to handle.

Meanwhile, Morata is statistically behind him despite scoring six goals in 15 games across all competitions.

Chelsea’s reported interest in Wilson is an interesting one and if he continues to score goals he could be a shrewd addition at Stamford Bridge, as he would inject some lightning pace in the final third.

But it may too big an ask for him to become the club’s first-choice option and using him more in a squad role could be a better fit.

Chelsea are still hoping that Morata can develop into the world-class striker they are craving and he will become just that is he can replicate his recent form over an extended period of time.
