Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has established himself as one of the most lethal strikers on the Premier League scene last season.

The 27-year-old has been linked with several Premier League clubs in the past months including West London giants Chelsea.

The Blues are in need of a new striker following the exit of Gonzalo Higuain whose loan deal has ended.

Ex-Argentine international striker Higuain joined Chelsea from Italian Serie A giants Juventus for the second half of the season and Callum Wilson could be his replacement though the Blues will have to overcome their two-window transfer ban.

The transfer ban was imposed on Chelsea by world football’s governing body FIFA for their culpability in the signing of underage players.

Their appeal against the ruling was thrown out by the Appeal Committee of FIFA thus prompting the Blues to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Apart from Chelsea, Callum Wilson has been linked with fellow London side West Ham United and Everton.

The Hammers are readying a £35m bid for the England international striker.

Chelsea Starting XI (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri; Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ruben Loftus-Cheek; Christian Pulisic, Callum Wilson, Willian.
