According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham could make another move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson this summer.

David Moyes undoubtedly needs to bring a new striker to the London Stadium this summer.
Sebastien Haller has failed to impress since joining the Hammers for £45 million last summer. Meanwhile, Albian Ajeti is clearly not good enough to be playing at the very highest level.
The problem for Moyes, however, is that he will have limited funds to play with this summer. It has been widely reported that the Scot will have to sell before he buys.
Moyes to swoop for Howe favourite?
And ExWHUemployee has suggested that Callum Wilson of Bournemouth could be a potential option for West Ham, if the Cherries end up going down, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday July 23rd):
“Wilson at Bournemouth again, we’ve liked him in the past, and if they go down there is potential there.”
Wilson was once valued at £70 million by Bournemouth (Bleacher Report). But the south coast outfit would surely get nowhere near that amount now, especially if they get relegated.
The four-capped England international has scored nine goals in 38 games for Eddie Howe’s side this season (Transfermarkt).
Wilson has experienced horrendous injury problems in the past. So signing him would represent a huge risk for West Ham.
And a move to bring him to the London Stadium would only make sense if Bournemouth are willing to accept a massively cut-price fee for the striker.
