Chelsea News: Blues leapfrog Liverpool in a race to sign a Premier League striker – bookies

Wilson has been in an amazing form in the Premier League this season, scoring six and helping seven further to help the Cherries to sixth at the table.

The return saw him get his first English call for the international break at the moment and he had scored on his debut in their friendly victory over the US last week.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed a tremendous increase in recent months after two serious knee injuries almost ended his career.

And he can now be set to leave the south coast in the near future with a number of top clubs circling.

Coral Bookmakers made Chelsea a 2-1 favorite to become the next Wilson club.

Liverpool and Tottenham are the closest rivals of the Blues in the betting market but far behind.

Harry Harry Aitkenhead said that Starsport: "If Callum Wilson's career continues on his current track, then his future might be far from Bournemouth.

"We make Chelsea the next most likely goal for a highly-rated striker and steps can come as early as this summer."

Wilson enjoyed an unforgettable night last Thursday when he started for England against the United States.

Despite losing some good opportunities, the Bournemouth striker scored a neat goal in a 3-0 win to open his international account.

He said: "I don't have words, it's not drowning at the moment.

"This is an opportunity for me and I just want to reach it with both hands. Wayne Rooney is a legend for England, to accept my shirt from him before the match was a great honor and I also had to share the field with him.

"The round is over now and I just started. I think the opportunity has passed, I know time is not on my side, I saw Marcus Rashford stand there and I thought I had a few minutes.

"This is a day that I will appreciate for the rest of my life."

Wilson will hope to maintain a good run as Bournemouth host Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
