Report: Bournemouth want £35m for reported West Ham United strikers Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson

West Ham United have been linked with Bournemouth duo Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, West Ham United will have to pay £35 million if they want to sign Bournemouth duo Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson.

West Ham launched a bid for the Cherries pair earlier this week, but it was immediately knocked back by Eddie Howe’s side.

Howe, himself, expressed his frustration at the bid - as it came just before Bournemouth’s final match of the season against Manchester United.

Bournemouth ended up losing the game 3-1, and Howe was frustrated that two of his players had to deal with speculation over their future prior to kick off.

The south coast side have already expressed a desire to keep hold of their key players, but they reportedly realise that there will come a time when the offers become too rich for them to refuse.

Bournemouth value Wilson and Ritchie at around £35 million, and the Mail suggest that they would accept offers of around that value.

West Ham have that sort of funds available this summer, but whether they will deem a move for the Bournemouth pair value for money remains to be seen.
