West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing AFC Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, according to The Guardian.

The Premier League side, who were knocked out of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night following their 4-1 defeat to the hands of Manchester United at Old Trafford, are ready to splash out up to £25m on the forward during the forthcoming January transfer window.

The 24-year-old, who is a former England Under-21 international, has scored four goals and provided one assist in 12 league appearances for the Cherries so far this season.

Wilson, who joined Bournemouth from League One outfit Coventry City back in July 2014 following his reported £3m switch, is wanted by Hammers boss Slaven Bilic following the news that fellow forward Diafra Sakho has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a thigh injury.

He has scored nine goals in 25 Premier League appearances overall.

West Ham currently hover just one point above the Premier League’s bottom three after their opening 13 league fixtures.
