Callum Wilson, a 31-year-old striker for Newcastle, has been connected to the Blues this January transfer window.

Chelsea is reportedly impressed by Toon frontman Callum Wilson, according to Football Transfers. They’re preparing to forgo their youth policy in favor of the more seasoned player. According to recent reports, Newcastle has reportedly contacted the Blues to discuss the English center-forward.

Wilson reportedly received an offer from Chelsea as well as Manchester United, according to HITC Football this afternoon.

It states that the attacker for Newcastle might be acquire for about £18 million. The Premier League team may choose to cash in if they receive a sizable offer in order to comply with Financial Fair Play rules.

Callum Wilson offered to Chelsea

If Wilson were to sign with a club, they would be taking a significant risk given his history of injuries, but he is a very experienced and proven goal scorer in the Premier League.

In fact, we wouldn’t mind seeing him wear Chelsea colors to give the young team some experience. Additionally, he would instantly add goals to the No. 9 position, which is a persistent problem in West London that the team is still trying to resolve.

Although he may not be the prominent frontman that Blues fans are hoping for. He could be a good temporary solution.

The Newcastle star knows England’s top division inside out and its players. He will also be well-known to a large portion of the Chelsea team at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking via The Footballer’s Football Podcast last summer. Wilson described Chelsea winger Raheem Sterling as an “unbelievable” player. The duo has been together before in England camps. But could they soon be playing in the same club side?

We’re eager to see how this transfer narrative develops during the last week of the January window.
