didn't he want to come to us on loan a while ago when Bruce was here?

Wilson wants out too apparently, rumours of a fairly low relegation release clause.

If we are realistic and want to move forward, Wilson is a decent shout as an experienced front man still at a decent age. Wilson, Watkins and Benrahma would be a very, very decent step forward up front compared to where we are.
For me, the thought of signing 2 players from the championship would worry me at this stage - we really should start to be looking at players who are playing well in the Premier League, or ripping apart one of the weaker European leagues and look decent in the European Cup/UEFA Cup.

Not asking that we start signing Messi or whatever, just that our signings are ambitious enough to keep the likes of Jack Grealish, Tyrone Mings, and John McGinn at the club. Which means buying players who are going to get us a strong, top half finish next season, and perhaps challenging for a place in Europe.

If the budget is around £100m, I'd be looking at spending ~£70m on a centre forward and a winger*, and ~£25m on a central midfielder. Then £5m + any sales on speculative buys, e.g. youngsters & players who "look good in the championship".

* Thinking something along the lines of £30m for Edouard + £40m for Sarr

We won’t be signing Abraham. He’s not going to want to go from playing in the champions league to our level, no matter how well he knows the club. He’ll have better options than us.

Callum Wilson.
A Coventry lad and will know the area, so shouldn't have too much trouble settling in.
However he's done his cruciates in both knees whilst at Bournemouth, so the medical will be interesting and could affect his price.
On the plus side, he's experienced at age 28 and his  goals per game stars for Bournemout in the Prem are pretty good. If we can bring him in for less than £8m net, on a swap deal involving Scott Hogan then I think he's worth signing.

Sorry, but isn’t Harry Wilson on loan from Liverpool.... therefore he is not Bournemouth’s to sell and the Scott Hogan plus cash deal rumour is clearly bollocks.

also doing the speculation rounds a part ex deal for Wilson from Bournemouth plus Hogan. Yes, it's the season to be silly.

is this the Bournemouth equivalent of Charlie dumping Diana for Camila

Declan Rice is the player you describe as “he puts in a shift” but generally in doing so achieves the square root of fuck all. If he was Finland or the Faroes and not English he’d be playing in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

He’s getting regular outings for the national side so he must be achieving better than the square root of FA.

Is that the true measure of talent? He’s just a good player, nothing more. Generally nondescript. I don’t dislike him but would you have him over McGinn or Luiz in our midfield; two players that cost a combined £18m vs Rice who will cost any team that buys him £50m+

Now I really rate Declan Rice and think he’s the best English DM. All about opinions innit?

I reckon if we had Rice sitting deep as a defensive midfielder Grealish, McGinn and Luiz would have the freedom to tear the opposition a new one.

Pretty sure Chelsea want to sign Rice and play him at CB.

I thought he played well in the 0-0 at VP.

Think Wilson would be a decent signing, but his injury history would be a worry.  Last thing we need is another big earner who spends most of his time on the treatment table.

I'm not sure why we're talking about Rice as there's no chance he'd come to us.  I'm amazed that some people think he's shit, he's going to have a great career at a top club.

I've always rated Wilson but think this is probably a bit of fantasy. With the parachute payment and £40m for Ake in their pocket they don't need to look at cut price deals.

And why would anyone look at Hogan and think he was worth a punt

I read that Bournemouth still owe £81m in transfer payments so if that is true they may be looking to sell a few more players.

The drop off in income is going to hit them hard you would think, I can see them being in real trouble in the next couple of years.

Yes, with a ground capacity of only 11,300 they've been wholly reliant on the Premier League gravy train. Even with a few parachute payments, players on big money will be sold particularly if the owe millions on players bought. They will really struggle even with a reduced wage bill.
