BBC pundit and former Premier League star Dion Dublin has urged Chelsea snub AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain and sign Callum Wilson from Bournemouth.

Wilson has been an outstanding striker as he managed to score nine times in the Premier League so far this season.


Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud both struggling to find the net and the Spaniard is said to be in his way leaving the Blues this month.

According to recent reports, the West London side are interested in Gonzalo Higuain as they look for Morata’s replacement.

However, former Manchester United striker turned to pundit Dublin has insisted that Wilson is good enough to play for Chelsea.

“Yes, he is [good enough for Chelsea]. I think he’s got all the attributes to make them a better side going forward.”

“He’s possibly more of an out and out forward than what they have at present.

“Morata seems to have a soft underbelly. He likes a tap in but doesn’t like to go through the pain barrier to score goals.”

“I do like Giroud, I think he’s a very good centre forward.”

“He doesn’t get the numbers that people expect but as a team player, I’ve got a lot of admiration for him. But Callum Wilson, yes, he would be good enough.”

Meanwhile, Maurizio Sarri side are said to be willing to pay up to £50m for Wilson’s services.

But Sky Sports man Kaveh Solhekol has also spoken about Bournemouth’s determination to keep hold of their striker.

“There’s been a really interesting development this afternoon,” Solhekol said.

“There’s news reaching our newsdesk that Chelsea are willing to spend up to £50m for Callum Wilson.”

“Another source is telling us that Bournemouth wouldn’t even want to sell him at that much and would be asking for more than £50m for him.”

“They don’t want to sell, they’ve already let Jermain Defoe go this window and they’ve signed Dominic Solanke.”

“Callum Wilson himself is having such a great season as a No.9. He’s scored 11 and he also scored on his debut for England.”

“Chelsea have been watching him very closely and our information today is that they are willing to pay £50m if they can’t get Gonzalo Higuain.”
