AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson believes that he is set to show the Premier League the best of himself over the upcoming seasons.

The 26-year-old is yet to have a full season following promotion to the Premier League in 2015.

That season, Wilson scored 23 goals in 50 appearances in all competitions as AFC Bournemouth won promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in the clubs history.

But just as Wilson was establishing himself in the Premier League, scoring 5 times in 6 appearances, he suffered a devastating knee injury in September 2015 which would keep him sidelined 7 months.

In January 2017, he then suffered the same injury in his other knee, this time being sidelined for 10 months.

Since his return from that injury, he has scored 10 Premier League goals and claimed 4 assists in 33 appearances, with 4 of those goals that he has attributed to coming in the opening 5 games of this season.

Speaking before the victory over Leicester City, Callum Wilson told the Daily Echo

“I’m 26 and I feel like I am fully fit now. Being 27, 28 or 29, they will be good years, they are traditionally known as the prime of your career.

“I am sure people will start to see the best of me in the Premier League.

Your say…

If you look at Wilson’s record – he scores about 7 or 8 goals in half a season. If he stays injury free for the whole season, he’s not going to be far off the magic 15 goal a season mark that any club outside the top 6 would bite your hand off for.

He’s not the best finisher in the Premier League, but even Kane and Aguero have missed chances this season. If Joshua King played centrally, I reckon he might score a few more of the chances Wilson misses. I also doubt he’d get into the same positions to miss them in the first place… – Join the conversation, click here.
