Bournemouth demand huge money for Chelsea target Callum Wilson

Bournemouth are demanding huge money to sell Callum Wilson this month.

The Daily Star says they want £75m to sell striker Wilson to Chelsea.

That sum is a staggering 25 TIMES the amount the Cherries paid Coventry for Wilson in July 2014.

And it underlines their resolve to keep hold of the England forward in the current window.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri admitted his club would go as high as £50m in order to land their target, who has scored ten goals so far this season.

But Bournemouth counterpart Eddie Howe has since responded by reiterating Wilson is going nowhere this month.

That is the club's public stance. But, behind closed doors, the general consensus of the Bournemouth hierarchy is they would listen to any offer above £70m.
