Chelsea boss Sarri approves £35M bid for Bournemouth striker Wilson

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has given the green light to move for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in January.

The Sun says Wilson is a £35million target for Chelsea in January.

The Bournemouth striker, who earned his first Three Lions call-up today, is on Sarri's radar after his stunning start to the season.

Sarri is looking to bolster his attack when the transfer window opens and Wilson is one of the most impressive forwards Chelsea have looked at.

The Italian has turned around Alvaro Morata's form but is still after a forward to add competition.

Blues look set to be priced out of a move for Mauro Icardi, who is valued at £90m by Inter Milan, and have also looked at Genoa's Krzysztof Piatek.

But Wilson represents a striker who can fit straight away into a Premier League team.
