Callum Wilson has told the Telegraph that Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane impresses him so much in England training.

Wilson has had to play second fiddle to Kane at international level so far, as the Spurs striker is such an important part of England’s team.

Kane wears the armband for his nation and is almost guaranteed a place in Gareth Southgate’s starting line-up.

But Bournemouth front man Wilson has no qualms with Kane being selected ahead of him, as the Spurs man is so impressive in training.

 

“He’s the captain, he plays well for his club week in, week out, so he’s doing something right,” Wilson said.

“In training you watch how clinical he is, in the finishing sessions, training with him, doing those sessions. There is no laughing and joking, just pure concentration.

“Sometimes in club football, you’ll be doing a finishing session but having a bit of banter with the lads, a competition, laughing and joking, people missing, but in a game that is not what happens, you have to be focused. Harry is in that frame of mind and I have taken that into my own training back at Bournemouth.”

The comments come just months after Wilson was actually linked with a move to Tottenham.

The Daily Mirror reported that Spurs were keen on the rapid striker, who is valued at around £50 million.

Tottenham never did make a move for Wilson over the summer, but he seems to be a player that is on their radar.

And Spurs will surely have been impressed by Wilson this term, as he has continued to score regularly for Bournemouth.

The 27-year-old has hit five goals in eight games for Bournemouth this term, to fire himself among the top goalscorers in the Premier League.
