Chelsea have reportedly decided that they will not launch an offer to prise Callum Wilson away from fellow Premier League side Bournemouth in their attempts to strengthen their attack.
The Blues currently sit in fourth place in the PL table as they continue to attempt and fend off the chasing pack in the battle for that last UEFA Champions League qualification spot.
Frank Lampard has relied heavily on youngster Tammy Abraham to lead the line for his side this campaign, with neither Michy Batshuayi nor Olivier Giroud getting a great deal of playing time.
For a club looking to compete on multiple fronts, that is certainly not an ideal situation as they could do with more quality depth in that area, but it doesn’t sound as though Callum will be the solution.
As reported by Sky Sports, as well as snubbing the idea of snapping up Nathan Ake, Chelsea are being tipped to opt against lodging a bid for his Bournemouth teammate.
However, it’s noted that in spite of scouting the forward, they will look at other targets instead and given he has managed just six goals in 24 games so far this term, that is arguably looking like a sensible decision from Chelsea.
Time will tell who is targeted instead by the Blues this month as they are free to sign players after their transfer ban was reduced, but it does not appear as though Wilson will be plying his trade at Chelsea any time soon.
