Affectionately nicknamed 'Bournemouth's goal machine' by the club's fans having scored prolifically for the Cherries, Callum Wilson has proven he has what it takes to score goals in the top flight despite having to overcome two long-term knee injuries.

The striker began his career at hometown club Coventry City in 2009, spending five years at the club, making 55 appearances from which he netted 23 goals.

Having also spent time on loan at Kettering Town and Tamworth, Wilson signed for the Cherries on 4th July 2014.

Wilson made a name for himself right from the off, scoring twice on debut in a 4-0 win against Huddersfield Town.

From there the striker kicked on, scoring 20 league goals in total to help the club achieve promotion to the Premier League in a stellar first season.

Wilson adapted well to the step up in class when playing in the top flight, bagging himself a hat-trick in the club’s first ever Premier League win 4-3 away at West Ham United.

After such a bright start to the season having scored five league goals - including an overhead kick against Leicester City - Wilson ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against Stoke City on 26th September 2015, which ruled him out for six months.

The striker started the 2016/17 season in a similar manner to his first, scoring six Premier League goals after netting in the 3-3 draw at home to Arsenal, surpassing his total from last season.

Frustratingly for Wilson and for everyone at the club, the striker ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament, this time in his left knee, on 1st February 2017 to rule him out for the remainder of the season.

Returning in the autumn of 2017, Wilson struck back with a goal in the Carabao Cup against Middlesbrough, and soon netted his second Premier League hat-trick in a win over Huddersfield.
