Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri have reportedly been given a go ahead signal to acquire Callum Wilson for £35 million when the winter window kicks off.

The 25yr old has been in form in the current season, and this have earned him a call to the English National team by Garry Southgate. Wilson was the first hit-man to be linked with a move to the Bridge in the current week.

Sarri is believed to be looking for an alternative option through the middle, and believes that Wilson has the quality to dazzle in his style of football, as he tries to acquire him.

According to The Sun, Chelsea are prepared to spend big to land the former Coventry City academy product, although the £35m outlay is still under half of what Inter Milan demanded for Argentine hit-man Mauro Icardi.

According to the media, Wilson will hit the ground in the event he arrives Stamford Bridge. The striker has already netted 6 times in 11 top fight games. His overall stats at Bournemouth shows that he had netted 25 times in 59 games, since the club gained promotion into the Premier League.

Meanwhile, French football Olivier Giroud has ended his goal drought with Chelsea as he netted the only goal of the game in the clubs victory over Bate to ensure Chelsea made it to the knockout stages of the Europa league.
