Liverpool, in their inimitable way, are set to splash some cash in this summer transfer window, as per English sources.

The Reds, who are set for a £700 million takeover, are ready for a massive squad overhaul in a bid to compete strongly for major honours next season.
With a huff and puff filled performances this season they have managed to outdo the usual Jekyll and Hyde Arsenal in the inconsistency game. They find themselves in seventh place, with no hopes of finishing any further.

Now Wilson who was out for six months due to injury but has scored five in his nine appearances for Bournemouth this season is touted to be the likely replacement for the inefficient Christian Benteke in the club’s attack. He is valued at £20 million which is a fair deal for the 24-year-old in this inflated transfer market.

It is reported that the Hammers are willing to accept a £15 million bid for the player
