West Ham are preparing to test Bournemouth’s resolve over England international Callum Wilson this summer.
According to The Mirror, West Ham are keen on a deal to sign Wilson as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of next season.
The Hammers have already made one big-money move this summer, bringing in Spanish midfielder Pablo Fornals from Villarreal for a fee which West Ham claimed to be the second biggest in the club’s history.
They are now eyeing a move for Wilson, who scored 14 goals in the Premier League for Bournemouth last season, despite struggling with injuries.
Wilson has scored 31 goals in 91 Premier League appearances for Bournemouth since the club’s promotion to the top-flight in 2015. This came after he scored 20 goals to fire the club to the Championship title.
The report claims that West Ham are hoping the temptation of a pay rise is enough to lure him away from the south coast.
Strikers West Ham could target
The Serbian international impressed for Fulham last season as they were relegated from the Premier League.
The Birmingham striker would be a fantastic addition to Manuel Pellegrini’s squad this summer.
Caputo impressed in the Serie A for Empoli last season and could be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
The Celta Vigo forward has been heavily linked with a move to West Ham in recent weeks.
