Rodgers eyes summer move for Callum Wilson

No sooner has Brendan Rodgers got his feet under the desk at the King Power Stadium, but he is already turning his mind to the summer transfer window.

The 46-year old Northern Irishman was only appointed Leicester manager on Tuesday, but he has wasted no time in getting to work, as he begins to assess his squad.

And one man already on his summer shopping list is said to be Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson, who is rated at £40 million, with, The Sun reporting, that Rodgers is already planning a revamp of the Leicester forward line.

The England striker has been missing from action since undergoing a knee operation last month, but still remains Bournemouth’s leading scorer this season, netting 12 times from 25 appearances in all competitions.

However, Leicester may not be the only team interested in Wilson’s services, with the 27-year old linked with both Chelsea and West Ham earlier this season.
