Chelsea boss Sarri approves Chelsea’s first January move – report

Chelsea’s gaffer approbation of a £35m bid for Bournemouth Callum Wilson is making huge headlines.

It was recently covered in various news outlets that Maurizio Sarri was interested in signing Callum Wilson in January. The idea behind the transfer is to bolster the club’s attacking options, that is currently being singularly spearheaded by Eden Hazard.

Alvaro Morata is gradually returning to form and Oliver Giroud’s barrenness in front of goal was broken in the Europa League this week against Bate Borisov.

Meanwhile, 24-year-old Bournemouth striker has bagged seven goals and five assists in 13 appearance so far this season. His impressive start to the season has given Bournemouth a really nice advantage to finish in the top ten.

On this evidence and more, Sarri has factored him into his long list of targets and has approved his capture in January.

Other big name strikers have been linked to the club such as Genoa’s Piatek Krzysztof who obviously just joined the Italian outfit and won’t be joining a new club soon and Mauro Icardi whose £90m asking price is a little ridiculous.

So, Wilson of former Coventry is cheaper at £35m and can also score goals regularly if played with the qualities available at the Blues midfield.
