Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has said that the Cherries’ top striker Callum Wilson is not for sale at any price.
Wilson has been strongly linked with a move to Stamford Bridge with Chelsea keen on the English forward. However, Bournemouth manager Howe has reinstated their desire to keep Wilson at the club.
“I’ve been told about the speculation, it’s not something I seek to read,” said Howe. “It’s a waste of time for me to do so. It’s business as normal, Callum has been bright and bubbly this week so no problems there.
“In my opinion, and it’s just my opinion I wouldn’t sell at any price but I’m the manager of the team trying to create the best team that I can. We desperately want to take the team forward and to do that we have got to keep our best players.
“He [Wilson] is a very important member of the team. He has unique attributes that really complement what we do here. He’s been a really good goal scorer for us this season, that’s the hardest things to do in the sport so we value him really highly.”
