No approach made by Chelsea or West Ham for Cherries star

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has insisted no approaches have been made for Callum Wilson.

Chelsea and West Ham have been linked with the England striker, who has been in superb form for the Cherries.

He has been touted as a possible replacement for Marko Arnautovic at West Ham, while reports have suggested that Chelsea are willing to pay £50m for Wilson if they miss out on Gonzalo Higuain.

However, Howe says there has been no sign of solid interest in Wilson despite speculation he could leave the south-coast club.

“We’ve had no interest in any of our players,” Howe said at a press conference, as reported by Sky Sports.

“Everything has just been speculation, which you understand as this is the month for it.”

“From my perspective and the team we have above me, we are always working together to try and find solutions to make the squad stronger and continue to move the team forward.

“They’re the main things. We’ll do that again, like we have done through the process that we’ve been together, for the benefit of Bournemouth.

“I don’t want to place any more pressure on Callum or any of my players by talking about things that aren’t important. What’s important is Callum working hard for the team and producing his best performances on a consistent basis.

“For him to be thinking about transfer fees, values and other clubs, I would recommend he focuses on Bournemouth.”
