According to a report by The Sun, Tottenham are the frontrunners to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if the Cherries are relegated later today.

Bournemouth need a miracle later this afternoon if they wish to retain their Premier League status, not only do they need to beat Everton at Goodison Park but they also require both Aston Villa and Watford lose their respective matches.

The Sun claim that the club will let Wilson leave this summer if they are relegated.

It is suggested that Eddie Howe’s side are keen to get the England international off their wage bill, with the striker’s £110,000-a-week salary said to be too much for Bournemouth to afford if they go down.

It is said that the 28-year-old could be available for as little as £10million when the transfer market opens on Monday, with Spurs currently regarded as the favourites for his signature.

The report asserts that the North Londoners consider Wilson as an ideal back up to Harry Kane and Daniel Levy will launch a quick offer for the striker if Bournemouth fail to beat the drop.

Spurs Web Opinion

Wilson’s form has dropped off a bit in the last couple of seasons but there is no doubt that he has a lot of fantastic attributes and is more than good enough to score goals in the Premier League. If he is indeed available for £10million, then it could potentially be a brilliant deal for us as Wilson is as good a striker as we can get, in terms of someone who would be willing to be back up to Kane.
