Everton are said to be keen on Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson this summer.

According to The Sun, Everton need to sell Idrissa Gueye to bring in Callum Wilson from Bournemouth.

Everton are keen on the England international, but they realise that he could be an expensive addition.

The London Evening Standard have suggested that Bournemouth want £60 million for their main goalscorer, and Everton would have to sell to afford that fee.


The Sun claim that Gueye is one player who could be offloaded to help Everton raise the funds for Wilson, but there must be questions over whether that transfer swap would be worth it for Marco Silva’s side.

Gueye has been a mainstay in Everton’s side ever since he arrived at Goodison Park, and has gone from strength to strength under Silva.

Gueye is now one of Everton’s most reliable performers and if he did depart, the Toffees would surely have to go out and buy another central midfielder.

Wilson would undoubtedly be an appealing addition to Everton’s team, as they need a goalscorer.

But his injury record is a concern, given his very expensive price-tag.

And Everton may be better off looking elsewhere, rather than selling key players to try and finance a move for the Bournemouth man.
