Aston Villa and Newcastle United eye Callum Wilson

Aston Villa are interested in signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth in the summer transfer window, according to Sky Sports. Newcastle United are also reported to want the England international striker and have held talks with the Cherries, who will play in the Championship next season after getting relegated from the Premier League at the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Newcastle have offered a player-plus-cash deal to Bournemouth and could send Matt Ritchie back to the Vitality Stadium, having signed the winger from the Cherries in 2016. Villa, though, have not made any such offer and want to pay cash only for Wilson.

Wilson had injury problems last season, and scored just six goals and provided only one assist in 35 Premier League games for Bournemouth, according to WhoScored. However, during the 2018-19 campaign, the 28-year-old England international striker made 29 starts and one substitute appearance in the league for the Cherries, scoring 14 goals and providing nine assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
