West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini recently sanctioned the sale of Marko Arnautovic, which means that they need a striker.
The Standard claim that Manuel Pellegrini is a big fan of Wilson, and West Ham could now move for the rapid England international.
Bournemouth want a big fee for Wilson, but West Ham hope that they have the funds to get him now, as they have raised more money from the sale of Arnautovic.
West Ham want to inject all the funds from Arnautovic’s sale back into the team, with signing a new striker thought to be their priority.
Whether obtaining Wilson will be possible remains to be seen.
Wilson’s price-tag, which could reach £60 million, makes him a risky buy for any club.
The striker is clearly a major threat, but his injury record counts against him, and could worry West Ham.
If the Hammers were to sign Wilson it is likely that he would go straight into their starting line-up for the new campaign.
