Chelsea to conclude talks with £25m-rated attacker


Emerging reports indicate that West London side Chelsea are set to conclude talks with Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson as negotiations have reached an advanced stage.

The report also claims that there is already an understanding between both sides which gives the positive hint that a deal would be sealed when the winter transfer window reopens in the new year.

The West London side are struggling to have their strikers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata score goals but that is not happening as expected and manager Maurizio Sarri is alleged to be running out of patience with his strikers.

This makes the Italian boss seek for a replacement as he hopes to win a title in his first season in the English Premier League after his switch from Italian Serie A side Napoli.

So far, Wilson has had 15 games under his belt this season and has been able to score 8 goals in addition to handing 5 assists which makes him the quality that is needed at the Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, the Blues are now fourth place in the Premier League table but they are optimistic of winning the Premier League as well as ensuring a qualification to the Champions League next season.
