The Express have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are ready to meet Callum Wilson’s wage demands as they look to sign the England international this summer to help provide cover for Harry Kane.
Wilson reportedly emerged as a target for Spurs soon after the Cherries’ relegation from the Premier League was confirmed (Mirror).
However, Spurs are reportedly facing competition from the likes of Newcastle United and West Ham for the striker’s signature (Sky Sports).
The Sun suggested last week that the 28-year-old was leaning towards a move to West Ham United despite Tottenham’s interest.
However, The Express claim that Spurs have not given up hope of landing Wilson.
The report suggests that Newcastle were previously the favourites to snap up the striker but are hesitating to meet his £75,000-a-week wage demands.
It is revealed that Spurs are willing to pay Wilson that amount but will have to sell some deadwood before they can complete a deal for the Bournemouth striker.
Jose Mourinho has reportedly been tracking Wilson since the end of the campaign and is keen to bring him to North London.

The signings we have made so far are all low-risk, homegrown (in Hart’s and Doherty’s case) and relative bargains. Wilson fits that profile given his vast Premier League experience and that is why I am convinced that he is our number one striker target this summer. While it would be fantastic if we can get someone like Milik, the Napoli star is likely to be more expensive than Wilson and will need some time to settle into the Premier League.
