Everton and West Ham United are set to battle for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson in the January transfer window, according to The Mirror.

Ronald Koeman wants to expand his attacking options in January and bring in some back-up for main striker Romelu Lukaku.

The forward is in a good run of form at the moment, having made 15 appearances for the Cherries and scored five goals in the Premier League so far this season.

Wilson joined Coventry City as a youngster and moved into their senior side in 2009 where he stayed for five years.

The 24-year-old moved to Bournemouth in 2014 and on the way to becoming their top scorer for that season, helped them get promoted into England’s top division for the first time in the club’s history.

The striker scored twice on his debut against Huddersfield Town in the Championship.

In July, he extended his time at the club until 2020 and it is reported he will cost at least £20 million.

With West Ham struggling this season, if the London side and Everton come knocking for the striker, he may be tempted to leave Bournemouth and move to a bigger club in the form of the Merseyside team.
