The summer search for a striker didn't go well. Target after target slipped away as players and clubs alike turned us down, however according to The Mirror one appears to be in both ours and Everton sights.

Ronald Koeman is said to want more options up front and sees Callum Wilson as the man to provide just that in January. We also have a keen interest in the player and I have no doubt that the board have already sent feelers in Bournemouth's direction to ascertain what it would take to prize him from their grasp. According to The Mirror, that would be a figure in excess of £20m.

The 24 year old has consistently impressed while rising up the Football League pyramid, making his name at League One side Coventry before joining Bournemouth in the Championship two seasons ago. He gained promotion with The Cherries in 2015 with his first Premier League goals coming when he scored a hattrick against us at Upton Park last August.

Is Callum Wilson someone you would like to the club to sign in January? How do you think he could fit into the squad?
