Callum Wilson could play in Premier League next season despite relegation from Bournemouth

West Ham have joined Newcastle to consider an offer for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, while the two clubs are part of a quartet of sides keen to sign team-mate David Brooks.

Tottenham are also keen to sign 28-year-old England international Wilson, while Crystal Palace and Leicester like Welsh winger Brooks.

He appears likely to leave Eddie Howe’s side following their relegation to the Sky Bet Championship, having joined them from Sheffield United for £ 11.5million in July 2018.

The Cherries are expected to demand fees of more than £ 20million to sell Wilson after their five-year Premier League run ended on Sunday.

The Hammers are known to want to accelerate their front line and Wilson, who has scored 67 goals in 180 appearances for the South Coast, would be a perfect fit for manager David Moyes.

However, the Scotsman knows he will have to move a number of players before he can recruit all of his summer targets.

Another goal from the forward on Moyes’ roster is Josh Maja of Bordeaux, who Moyes made his senior debut during their time together at Sunderland.

A space up front is about to open up as Hammers forward Albian Ajeti, who struggled to enter the camp under Manuel Pellegrini and Moyes, looks set to join the Scottish champions of Celtic.

Moyes has already added loaner Tomas Soucek on a permanent contract since the end of the season and West Ham has avoided relegation. He signed a four-year contract.
