Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe says the club will not entertain any interest in Chelsea target Callum Wilson when the transfer window opens in January.
Wilson has forced his way into the England set-up this season by scoring seven times and marked his first international cap with a goal in the win over the United States at Wembley in November, with his impressive performances catching the eye of boss Maurizio Sarri.
It is o secret that Sarri is desperate to improve the front line in the coming transfer windows as he firmly believes that the strike-force in one area that really needs improving on, especially as Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata will not bang in 20-30 goals a season.
And with the transfer window just a few weeks away, Howe, is not about to let any of the Cherries’ core squad depart.
“Yes, we are (confident),” Howe said on the Sky Sports website.
“At this stage we are just focusing on the matches, we have got so many games to come around the Christmas period, I am sure Callum is the same, he is focusing on his football.
“We are certainly not anticipating losing players in January that we don’t want to.”
Wilson is not good enough for a move to Stamford Bridge.
We are one of the biggest clubs in the country and although Wilson has put in some decent performances this season, he is not ready to even get into the squad at Stamford Bridge, never-mind starting on a regular basis.
So Howe has no need to worry about losing Wilson we will not be making a move anytime soon, especially since the likes of Gonzalo Higuaín and Mauro Icardi have been linked.
