According to a report from the Daily Mail, Newcastle have identified Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson as their priority transfer target this summer. And that could represent a problem for West Ham, with David Moyes also thought to be after the 28-year-old.
According to ExWHUemployee, the Hammers could make another move for the Cherries hitman this summer.
Moyes will be keen to bolster his attacking ranks before the start of next season.
Sebastien Haller has struggled since moving to the London Stadium from Eintracht Frankfurt for around £45 million last summer. Meanwhile, Albian Ajeti looks set to leave east London.
So Callum Wilson’s reported availability for just £10 million (The Sun) will undoubtedly be appealing to West Ham.
Tough battle lies ahead for Moyes
But the Hammers may have a problem bringing him to the London Stadium, with Newcastle thought to be prioritising a move for the four-capped England international (Daily Mail).
Steve Bruce will be desperate to bring an established goalscorer to St James’ Park this summer.
And Wilson would be a useful addition for either the Hammers or the Magpies.
The 28-year-old has scored plenty of goals in his career, with 91 strikes in 244 games (Transfermarkt).
The Cherries hitman has a terrible record with injuries, however. So signing him come along with a decent amount of risk.
Wilson might just be worth taking a punt on though. If he remains injury free, £10 million would be an absolute steal.
Newcastle’s alleged interest in Wilson will undoubtedly make West Ham’s task of signing the striker a lot more complicated, hwoever.
