Report: Spurs willing to offer Ryan Mason in part-exchange deal to sign Callum Wilson

Tottenham are keen to land Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are prepared to offer midfielder Ryan Mason in a part-exchange deal for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson.

Spurs not only saw their bid for the Premier League title fall short, but slipped below North London rivals Arsenal with a 5-1 defeat to Newcastle on the final day of the season.

Having finished below Arsenal for the 21st year in a row, Spurs need to strengthen their squad this summer and continue to develop under Mauricio Pochettino - and it's no secret what their biggest problem is.

Star striker Harry Kane started every Premier League game this season, and Spurs desperately need to add another striker to offer some cover and competition in the final third.

The Daily Mail now report that Tottenham are preparing a move for Bournemouth hitman Callum Wilson, who has recovered from a major knee injury sustained in September.

Wilson, 24, smashed 23 goals in all competitions last season, whilst he also added five goals in 13 games during a stolen season this term.

The pacey front man is one of the most dangerous English strikers around, and it's believed that Bournemouth want at least £20m if they have to sell the striker this summer.

However, Spurs are hoping to bring that price down by including midfielder Ryan Mason in the deal, with the London Evening Standard reporting that Bournemouth are keen to land the 24-year-old in a £6m deal.

Mason has struggled this season, and if Spurs can package him up to sign Wilson, that may be a smart move from Tottenham and manager Pochettino.
