Bournemouth strike star would be the cherry on the cake for Liverpool

| 21.04.2016

Callum Wilson may have missed much of this season through injury, but few have forgotten the goalscoring prowess and electric pace of the Cherries frontman, with a series of Premier League heavyweights reportedly keen on securing his signature this summer.

Liverpool lead the running at 5/1 and Jurgen Klopp is likely to go shopping for strikers with Christian Benteke set to depart Merseyside this summer.

Their fierce rivals Man United are 7/1 to make Wilson a Red Devil, with a move to Pep Guardiola’s Etihad revolution priced at 8/1.

Arsenal are also 8s to acquire the former Coventry City hitman, who has boasted an impressive strike-rate at Dean Court, with 28 goals in 57 games for the Cherries.

A trio of Premier League clubs – Everton, Southampton and Leicester City – are all 16s to add the forward, valued at £5.25m by Transfermarkt, to their ranks.

Meanwhile the Championship’s top club, Middlesbrough, are 20/1 to lure Wilson from the coast to the Riverside.

Bournemouth host Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea on Saturday, with the Cherries 19/10 to bag the points, with 13/10 for the Blues and a share of the spoils priced at 12/5.

Another big performance from the now-fit Wilson, who has netted five times in his seven Cherries appearances this season, could force the league’s heavyweights to make a move for the striker, and send the odds of a switch from the seaside tumbling.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
