West Ham United are reportedly planning to bid £25m for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson following the injury blow to Diafra Sakho.

West Ham United are reportedly planning to launch a £25m bid for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Hammers had an offer thought to be in the region of £15m turned down by the Cherries in the summer, but Slaven Bilic's side are expected to jump back in the market for the ex-Coventry striker.

According to The Guardian, now that Diafra Sakho will be on the sidelines for six weeks with a thigh injury, West Ham intend to step up their pursuit of Wilson.

The 24-year-old signed a new four-year deal at the Vitality Stadium in July.
