Newcastle United could sell Callum Wilson

Newcastle United could sell striker Callum Wilson in the summer transfer window, according to a report from The Telegraph

The newspaper reported on its online version on 11 May that the 32-year-old striker could be sold. Wilson has dropped down the pecking order behind Alexander Isak at St James’ Park, and he wants a fresh challenge in his career.

The Magpies will look to sign a new striker should Wilson leave the club. They have earmarked Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin as one of their options as a replacement.

Wilson joined the club in the summer of 2020 and has made over 100 appearances for the Magpies in all competitions.

Callum Wilson likely to leave Newcastle United

The Magpies need to offload a few players before the end of this month to comply with the Premier League’s Profit and Sustainability Rules.

One of the players who is attracting interest from a host of clubs, including Liverpool, is exciting young winger Yankuba Minteh. However, there could be more departures. Martin Dubravka could leave with Celtic vying for his signature. And Wilson may follow him away from St James’ Park this summer.

The former AFC Bournemouth striker has been a great asset for Newcastle, and Eddie Howe hailed him previously as an “outstanding” player. He is a reliable goalscorer but it’s high time Newcastle look to ship him out and bring in another quality Premier League striker who can challenge Isak for the starting role.

Calvert-Lewin has played a key role for the Toffees as they comfortably avoided relegation last season. Everton are definitely not going to sell him on the cheap, and considering Newcastle’s financial situation, they might struggle to lure him away from Goodison Park.

In another Newcastle story, the Magpies have agreed a deal to sign 26-year-old player, medical to follow in the coming days.
