Aston Villa have stepped up their interest in former Coventry City striker Callum Wilson, whose future at Bournemouth remains uncertain.

The Daily Mail claims Wilson is on Villa’s striker shortlist in this transfer window along with Brentford’s Ollie Watkins.

Newcastle United and Crystal Palace have also been linked with the 28 year old.

In July, The Sun reported that Tottenham Hotspur were ‘heading the hunt’ for the England international.

Coventry are believed to have a sell-on clause and could receive a cash windfall if Wilson leaves Bournemouth.

The Sky Blues sold Wilson to Bournemouth in 2014 for an undisclosed fee, thought to be in the region of £3m.

Coventry-born Wilson started his career with the Sky Blues and scored 22 goals in 49 league appearances for the club.

He made his debut as a substitute in a League Cup tie against Hartlepool United in August 2009. His league debut came as a substitute against Queens Park Rangers in December 2010.
