AFC Bournemouth have reportedly received an offer of £25million for Cherries duo Callum Wilson and Matt Ritchie from West Ham United.

Sports Journalist Pete O’Rourke posted on Twitter on Monday evening…

Bournemouth have rejected £25m bid from West Ham for Callum Wilson and Matt Ritchie and told them the duo are not for sale. #WHUFC #afcb

Soon after that report, Sky Sports ‘sources’ also reported the same transfer offer but added…

‘at the moment, (West Ham) are not planning to make a further offer.

Callum Wilson had impressed during the earlier part of the Premier League campaign, scoring a memorable hat-trick against West Ham United to record the Cherries first ever top flight victory.

He unfortunately went on to miss around seven months of the season with a knee injury.

Matt Ritchie has also enjoyed the step up to the Premier League following promotion, scoring the Cherries goal of the season at home to Sunderland and also impressing on the international stage, winning the goal of the year award for Scotland.

The duo cost the Cherries a combined fee of less than £3million when they joined from Coventry City and Swindon Town respectively.

Eddie Howe won’t be happy with that.
