COVENTRY City are set to reject Cherries' second bid for striker Callum Wilson.

The Dean Court side came back with an improved offer after Coventry turned down their initial seven-figure approach.

Wilson, 22, is believed to be valued at around £3million but the Sky Blues are thought to be unwilling to sell.

Bids north of £3million may test City's resolve, but at the moment it is thought that Cherries are offering well below what the League One club are looking for.

Wilson scored 22 goals in his first full season of first-team football with City in 2013-14.

Cherries boss Eddie Howe is in the market for a striker having lost the services of Lewis Grabban to Norwich City last week.

That’s just pants :-[

However if Cov think he’s worth more than Grabbs, maybe we should look elsewhere.

Frazer Campbell of Cardiff has a 800k release clause, so 3 million for a league 1 player is not realistic, particulary when his club is in financial dire-straights. We know from experience that when you are struggling financially, it tends to push player valuations down, take Ritchie as an example. We have lost many a good player for less than their true value.
GOOD LUCK TO COVENTRY IN THEIR BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL.!!!!

Misguided fools, he is not worth more than that not at that level.

Even the other bigger clubs have not upped their offers so it looks like they are holding out because they know that Uncle Max is on board.

Panic not my fellow cherries the game is afoot.

The reason CW is valued at £3million is is age, at 22 he is seen an exciting prospect with bags of talent and most importantly can score goals, granted he is untested at a higher level but he must have some talent for 4 of the bigger teams in the championship are interested. As for Frazier Campbell yes he has a release clause of only £800k but Leicester have had a bid accepted for him so cant see him coming to Bournemouth
