Pundit Jamie Redknapp has told the Daily Mail that he thinks Bournemouth did well to keep hold of striker Callum Wilson amid interest from West Ham United.

The Cherries were in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon, hosting Everton at the Vitality Stadium as they pursued a first home win of the campaign.

Wilson opened the scoring with a close-range header, before Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed Everton level, only for Ryan Fraser to put Bournemouth back in front.

 

Wilson then beat the Everton defence to a ball over the top, and lofted over Jordan Pickford to seal a 3-1 win over Eddie Howe's side.

Unsurprisingly, England international Wilson stole the headlines with his brace, again showing why he's one of the Premier League's top scorers.

The 27-year-old has now hit three goals in his last two games, and he has earned praise from Jamie Redknapp off the back of Sunday's performance.

Redknapp feels Wilson showed exactly why he's an asset to England, praising him for a poacher's finish and for his technique with his second goal.

Redknapp also feels Bournemouth have done brilliantly to keep Wilson out of West Ham's clutches, with The Sun claiming the wanted Wilson after missing out on Maxi Gomez, though even with Redknapp's praise, the Hammers are likely delighted with Sebastien Haller.

“Scoring twice against Everton was a timely reminder from Callum Wilson about what he could bring to Gareth Southgate’s England squad,” said Redknapp. “His first goal came about because he got himself in the right place at the right time in the six-yard box. It was a proper poacher’s finish. His second saw him beat Jordan Pickford with a lovely lob. Bournemouth did well to keep hold of the 27-year-old when West Ham and Co were circling in the summer. Wilson is such a handful,” he added.
