The Chronicle have offered an update on the future of rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Callum Wilson as they claim that the striker is currently pushing for a move away from the Vitality Stadium.

Wilson is said to be one of the options near the top of Tottenham’s wishlist this summer as they go after a suitable back-up to Harry Kane (Express).

Spurs are reportedly willing to meet the striker’s £75,000-a-week wage demands in order to bring him to North London, while Newcastle are also said to be keen on snapping up the England international (Sun).

The Chronicle now claim that Wilson is likely to be on his way out of the Cherries after learning of interest from Premier League clubs.

The 28-year-old reportedly is keen to continue playing in the Premier League in order to give himself the best shot of making England’s squad for the Euros.

It is claimed that Newcastle are currently the front-runners for Wilson, who is valued by Bournemouth at £30 million.

The Cherries are apparently willing to accept a cash plus player deal for Wilson, with winger Matt Ritchie going the other way.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is to be expected that Wilson might want to go to a club where he is first choice, particularly considering that he is now in the peak years of his career. I would not complain if we singed him as a back up to Kane as I believe he would be a useful option. However, I also would not be disappointed if we missed out on Wilson as there are potentially better options out there.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Kane is going to play for the 3 Lions- so there should be no issue for anyone signing on as a back-up. It is just a matter of time until Kane is used up and side-lined with injury and/or form deterioration. National team football has not been kind to Spurs or to Kane.
