Wilson plays down gossip surrounding United move
BOURNEMOUTH forward Callum Wilson has responded to transfer rumours linking him with a move to United in the January transfer window.
Reds manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted the club would be exploring their options in the winter window and wants another forward to lessen the goal-scoring burden on the shoulders of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in attack.
He said: “Of course, we let Alexis and Romelu go. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see that it’s a forward that, next time, we’re going to recruit – we’re looking for some creativity and goals.”
Plenty of names have been linked with a move to Old Trafford including
Wilson – whose excellent form for Bournemouth has propelled him into the England squad.
The 27-year-old has scored five goals in the Premier League this season but refused to be drawn on the speculation surrounding his future.
“I usually find out by people reading stuff and coming up to me!” he said.
“I’m just kind of like ‘you know as much as me’. I don’t really listen to it.
“I don’t read papers and I don’t read Twitter feeds about transfer rumours. I tend to just focus on myself.
“I’ve just signed a contract at Bournemouth so I’m committed there.
“I try not to let anything like that affect my game.”
