Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson cools Chelsea, Man Utd rumours

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has cooled transfer speculation linking him with Chelsea and Manchester United.

Wilson, 28, scored 14 goals in 30 Premier League appearances last season but has managed just eight this term and endured a torrid four-month Premier League drought.

"Of course it is flattering, they are great clubs, massive clubs in the league," Wilson told Sky Sports. "Last season, my performances were quite consistent and, when there were links, I tried to stay at a certain level and play well.

"First and foremost is obviously keeping Bournemouth up and safe and I haven't been good enough this season to even be talking about things like that. I put it to the back of my mind and tried to focus on myself."
