Howe on Wilson exit
Eddie Howe insists Bournemouth are not interested in selling Callum Wilson to Chelsea.
“I’ve been told about the speculation, it’s not something I seek to read,” said Howe. “It’s a waste of time for me to do so. It’s business as normal, Callum has been bright and bubbly this week so no problems there.
“In my opinion, and it’s just my opinion I wouldn’t sell at any price but I’m the manager of the team trying to create the best team that I can.
“We desperately want to take the team forward and to do that we have got to keep our best players.
“He [Wilson] is a very important member of the team. He has unique attributes that really complement what we do here. He’s been a really good goal scorer for us this season, that’s the hardest things to do in the sport so we value him really highly.”

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth says the Chelsea board are not ‘overly keen’ on a deal.
“A striker seems to be top of the agenda,” he said on Sky Sports Transfer Centre.
“Argentine Gonzalo Higuain is boss Maurizio Sarri’s choice.
“Higuain scored a career high 36 goals in his final season at Napoli, under Sarri. However we are told the terms of a potential deal have put off the decision makers at Chelsea.
“Higauin is currently on loan at AC Milan from Juventus. Milan have an obligation to buy for £32m in the summer. Now Chelsea would have to take over the terms of that deal at and at 31 years old it’s thought director Marina Gr is not overly keen.
“So who else is in the frame to come in at Chelsea? Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is someone they have said they are interested in.
“One source claims they are prepared to spend £50m on him. Bournemouth though don’t want to sell and are under no pressure to sell. He also has three years on his contract.”
