Former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson has been the subject of a rejected £25m double bid from West Ham United.

Now at Premier League side Bournemouth, Wilson, 24, has scored 5 goals in 7 appearances in The Premier League this season after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in the match against Stoke City in September.

Ironically, three of those goals came against The Hammers when Wilson scored a hat-trick in August 2015.

As part of the £25m offer, West Ham also bidded for midfielder Matt Ritchie but Bournemouth have rejected the offer, telling West Ham that neither Wilson or Ritchie are for sale.

Wilson left The Sky Blues in 2014, making the step up to The Championship where Wilson’s 20 goals fired The Cherries to The Premier League in his first season at the club.
