AFC Bournemouth are bracing for the first test of their resolve this summer, with an apparent interest in striker Callum Wilson.

The England striker is currently preparing himself ahead of the UEFA Nations League finals in Portugal after being named in England’s provisional squad for the new tournament.

But Everton are set to cause a distraction with a reported £35million offer.

British tabloid newspaper The Sun have claimed…

“Bournemouth could find it hard to resist a massive offer for a player who only cost them £3m five years ago and has suffered cruciate injuries in both knees.”

Everton, however, do not apparently have the cash available to complete the deal and would have to sell players before they could make moves on more additions.

The newspaper added that Everton manager Marco Silva has decided that selling Idrissa Gueye could help fund his move for Wilson.

Wilson has previously been the subject of transfer speculation involving Chelsea.

At that time fees of £50-70million were being quoted by Dean Jones, who describes himself as a “Football Insider for Bleacher Report”

Your say…

I would think they are the biggest threat to take Fraser and Wilson. They have tracked them both and going to lose Richarlison for big cash as well as already needing a centre forward.

I was always unsure Fraser has the touch to be an Arsenal player and I don’t buy that he would go to Newcastle.

It’s all speculation of course and they may well both stay but if I had to place a bet on where they would end up it would be Everton first for both. – Join the conversation, click here.
