Chelsea fans gush over transfer target Callum Wilson's goal-scoring England debut
Despite being unbeaten in the league so far, Maurizio Sarri has yet to get Chelsea’s strikers firing.
Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata have scored just five league goals between them, although Eden Hazard has scored more singlehandedly.
Due to this lack of consistency from Chelsea’s strikers, they are being connected to every free-scoring striker in Europe.
And this now includes Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.
Wilson’s been a key part in the Cherries’ excellent start to the season – he’s got six league goals already.
Serious injuries have plagued Wilson’s career, but after having a solid preseason, he looks ready to kick on to the next level.
Because of his goal-scoring under Eddie Howe this season, Gareth Southgate included him in his most recent England squad.
And the former Coventry City man took full advantage of his opportunity, scoring on his debut for the national side in their 3-0 win over the USA.
So, here’s how Chelsea fans reacted to Wilson’s goal-scoring England debut last night:
I kept a close eye on Callum Wilson yesterday during England's win over USA. Chelsea could do a lot worse than have a good look at him in January. The true heir to Diego Costa? #cfc https://t.co/NapeK3C5B7

I believe Callum Wilson can do better if given the chance to play in a big club like Chelsea…no need breaking the bank for Icardi in my opinion, he's average.

Quite rate Callum Wilson. I'd take him at Chelsea in January for a sensible amount. Sort of striker we're missing #cfc
