One of the standout rumours in the latest round of transfer tittle-tattle sees Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The 24-year-old striker has only just returned to action having missed over six months with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
People may question why Spurs are preparing to make a move for a striker with only five Premier League goals to his name, especially after a lengthy layoff, but Wilson has shown before he is capable at stepping up.
The Bournemouth forward first made his name in League One with Coventry City, scoring 21 goals in 37 league games during the 2013/14 season and did so after an inauspicious start with the Midlanders that saw him loaned out to non-league teams twice.
Furthermore, this impressive tally came despite being out with a shoulder injury for two months and losing Leon Clarke, who he had formed a strong partnership with, to Wolverhampton Wanderers midway through the campaign.
Following his strong showings with the Sky Blues, Wilson earned a £3m move to the Cherries who were then in the Championship.
There were doubts about whether he would be able to make the step up, after Clarke struggled at Wolves, but they were swept aside quickly.
The new Cherries’ recruit found the net twice on his debut, going on to register 20 strikes in the league and earn an England Under 21 call-up as Bournemouth won the title.
Eddie Howe decided to stick with his star striker in the Premier League and that decision was justified when Wilson scored five goals in seven matches before his unfortunate injury.
Clearly, this is a player who can take on any challenges that come to him suggesting a move to White Hart Lane would be no problem.
Mauricio Pochettino has already shown he is willing to play young English talent, with the likes of Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane prospering at the club, and Wilson would fit into this perfectly.
Furthermore, the Londoners have been looking for a striker to help share the burden with Kane since January and the Bournemouth man is more than capable of fulfilling this role.
