Why Manchester United should sign Callum Wilson
According to a report in Metro, Manchester United have been linked with a move for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson. Wilson scored a brace on the weekend against Leicester and is an England international now. He’s also chipped in with an assist as well.
Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku are now at Inter Milan, which in theory is the right move but leaves the squad with very few forward options.
On the plus side, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who are both very young but have a lot of experience have got off the mark early along with new boy Daniel James but with Martial out with injury, the options up top are a little thin and this could be a recurring problem throughout the season.
Wilson is very clinical in front of the goal and is capable of holding the ball up, closing down defenders, running the channels and can linking with other forwards.
Wilson scored 15 goals and registered 10 assists, which tells you everything about Wilson, as he’s the ultimate team player. Solskjaer is determined to get players who work for the team and Wilson would be fantastic at leading the line.
United are one of the youngest sides in the Premier League since the season started, which is very much in tune with the traditions of the club but having an experienced Premier League proven forward would bring some balance into that side.
Much will depend on how the likes of Mason Greenwood, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and Daniel James replace Lukaku and Sanchez’s output. It’s not as difficult a task but it’ll require a real team effort from all the players.
Manchester United’s defence has looked very solid so far, having conceded only 4 goals so far, which is the same as Liverpool and kept two clean sheets at home, which is the same as they had for the whole of last season.

Callum Wilson will easily fill that void and his ability to be the first line of defence, while also being a goalscorer and team player will help
