Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has opened up on why he feels he does not deserve to be linked with bigger Premier League clubs. The 28-year-old striker says it is “flattering’’ to be linked to the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United, but went into detail about his form. Wilson told Sky: “Last season my performances were consistent and when there were links, I tried to stay at a certain level and play well.
“Any player would like to play in the Champions League and progress, that’s what I’ve based my whole career on. “First and foremost is obviously keeping Bournemouth up and safe and I haven’t been good enough this season to even be talking about things like that. “I put it to the back of my mind and tried to focus on myself.’’
Despite scoring 14 times a season ago, he has had somewhat of a slump since then, as well as showing inconsistency in front of goal. If he wants to grab a place in the England squad for the Euro’s he will have to step it up. So far this campaign Chelsea star Tammy Abraham has outperformed him along with Southampton’s Danny Ings and Everton ace Dominic Calvert-Lewin who are both adding to the pressure.
