Chelsea green light to seal Premier League signing after bosses message
Callum Wilson has been linked with a move to CHELSEA FC over the past few days – and it seems that the Blues will have a chance to get a deal done for the striker.
The transfer window has not brought the type of business that many people had hoped for and Chelsea have struggled to make any serious offers for their top transfer targets – which has meant that they have had to change tactics.
CHELSEA FC, Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham are in the market for Wilson after learning of rumours this weekend that the Toon are not prepared to let the England striker leave the club.
The Magpies have already turned a loan swoop down for the 31-year-old from Atletico Madrid, while AC Milan have also shown interest this month.
But the Toon must sell before buying to remain within Financial Fair Play rules, and the centre-forward’s contract is up next summer.
And amid the speculation – his manager Eddie Howe has insisted all clubs could lose their best talent because of FFP.
He said: “[Wilson] is 100 per cent committed to Newcastle. We want two fit strikers and want to keep him, but obviously, some things are out of my control.”
He added: “It’s been a difficult window so far. It’s the first time since I’ve been manager that we’ve been linked with players leaving. That creates an unsettling dynamic.
“We want to keep our squad intact and keep our best players, but I’m also aware of the club side and FFP is affecting all clubs. We’re no different to any other club.”
