Premier League club West Ham United have pulled out of the race to sign Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson this summer according to the publication from the London Evening Standard.

The Hammers are one of several clubs linked with a move for the England international attacker.

West Ham United initially had an interest in Callum Wilson but the £60m asking price from Bournemouth has made it a no-go area for the East London giants.

Apart from West Ham United, Callum Wilson has been linked with other Premier League clubs like Everton and Chelsea.

The 27-year-old was in very good form for the Cherries during the just concluded Premier League season.

He scored 14 goals and also provided seven assists in 30 games in the Premier League.

Callum Wilson was seriously linked with West London giants Chelsea during the winter transfer window in January but the move didn’t see the light of the day.

Chelsea won’t be able to make a move for Callum Wilson this summer due to the two-window transfer ban hanging over their head.

The Blues were penalized by world football’s governing body FIFA for wrongdoing in the signing of players under the age of 18 though it must be pointed out that they have appealed the ruling at CAS (Court of Arbitration for Sports).
