Redknapp reckons West Ham should go all out to sign Bournemouth striker Wilson if Arnautovic leaves this month

The Sky Sports pundit has identified Callum Wilson as the perfect replacement for the Austrian striker.

Jamie Redknapp says the Bournemouth goal scorer should be acquired by West Ham United at all costs should Marko Arnautovic leave the club this month.

Arnautovic is the subject of speculation as a mega-money move to China looms, although the Hammers want more than the £35m on offer from Shanghai SIPG.

Wilson has scored ten goals and provided five assists for the Cherries this season, the latest of which was a 20-yard belter against West Ham themselves.

Former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder Redknapp explained why the 26-year-old is a must-buy for the club:

“If Marko Arnautovic leaves West Ham, they should do their utmost to bring in Callum Wilson,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“He reminds West Ham fans just how good he is almost every time he plays them, taking his tally to six goals in six games against the club.

“Of course Bournemouth will fight to keep him, but any offer in excess of £40million would be hard to refuse.”
