Newcastle United remain keen on a potential move for Bournemouth forward Callum Wilson though may have to smash their transfer record to sign him, according to the Chronicle

The 24-year-old marksman has been mooted as a potential target for the Magpies as they look to bring in potential Premier League quality amid Rafa Benitez’s Tyneside revolution.

It’s understood the former Coventry City ace will remain a target into the summer should the Spaniard guide the Toon Army back into the proverbial Promised Land at the first time of asking.

Still, the report claims Wilson could cost up to £20m if United want to bring him up to Tyneside from the south coast, as they did with former teammate Matt Ritchie over the course of the summer.

The Scotland international was convinced to swap the Premier League for the Championship and has since established himself as one of the club’s most important players.

A deal of that magnitude would break the Toon’s transfer record, which currently stands at the £16m shelled out on Michael Owen in 2005.

Would Wilson be that much of an improvement on Dwight Gayle? Let us know below…
