Dion Dublin believes that Chelsea FC should make signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth their top priority in the January transfer window.

The Blues are currently being linked with a host of potential reinforcements this month as Maurizio Sarri considers bolstering his squad ahead of the second half of the season.

Wilson has been touted as a possible target for the Blues as they eye a potential replacement for Alvaro Morata, who has been struggling for consistent form recently.

The Bournemouth striker has been in solid form so far this season, scoring nine goals and making five assists in 20 Premier League appearances for Eddie Howe’s side.

It remains to be seen whether there is any truth to the rumours linking Chelsea FC with a move to sign Wilson.

However, former Norwich City star Dublin seems to think that he would be a great signing for the west London club.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Radio 5 live, Dublin said: “Wilson has all the attributes to make them [Chelsea FC] a better side going forward, he is a more out-and-out forward than what they have at present.

“Morata seems to have a soft underbelly, he likes a tap-in but does not really like to go through the pain barrier to score goals.

“I do like Giroud, he is a very good centre-forward. He does not get the number that people expect but as a centre-forward, and as a team player, I have a lot of admiration for him.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their home clash against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday night.
