Proven Premier League star will be open to completing late deadline day Chelsea move!
Chelsea could make a late swoop for Newcastle star Callum Wilson before the January transfer window slams shut.
Chelsea fans all know that the board have really struggled in front of goal this season and it has not been any secret that signing a new striker has been on the agenda of boss Mauricio Pochettino.
However – the transfer window has not brought the type of business that many people had hoped for and Chelsea have struggled to make any serious offers for their top transfer targets – which has meant that they have had to change tactics.
CHELSEA FC, Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham are in the market for Wilson after learning of rumours this weekend that the Toon are not prepared to let the England striker leave the club.
The Magpies have already turned a loan swoop down for the 31-year-old from Atletico Madrid, while AC Milan have also shown interest this month.
But the Toon might be forced to sell before buying to remain within Financial Fair Play rules, and the centre-forward’s contract is up next summer.
According to The Evening Standard, the Magpies could be forced to sell Wilson for a bargain £18million.
But if they receive an important proposal because of Financial Fair Play, that could be a different situation, and Wilson could be open to the move.
Wilson is at the club that he loves – he has no desire to leave the Toon and making a move to CHELSEA FC at this stage of his career would not really be one that he would enjoy.
This would be a panic buy from Chelsea.
