Chelsea 'will not be bidding' for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson
- Chelsea are in the market for a back-up striker.
- They have been scouting the 27-year-old.
- The Englishman hasn't scored a league goal since September 28.
- The Blues have ended their interest in the centre-forward.
According to Sky Sports, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been on Chelsea's radar for the past 12 months. However, the Blues are not ready to make a move for a player who has not scored a single league goal since September 28.
Wilson signed for Bournemouth in summer 2014. The 27-year-old has made 172 appearances for the Cherries, scored 64 goals and registered 28 assists ever since.
This term, the Englishman has taken part in 24 games, collecting 6 goals and one assist.
Wilson has scored one goal in his 4 games for the Three Lions.
Chelsea have been scouting the market in search of a gifted back-up striker as neither Michy Batshuayi nor Olivier Giroud has convinced Frank Lampard so far. However, the Bournemouth centre-forward doesn't seem to be a much more reliable option.
