With Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho both struggling for consistency, the Foxes need a reliable centre-forward who can ensure goals coming on a regular basis.
However, negotiating with the Cherries won’t be easy, especially considering the 27-year-old extended his contract before the start of the season.
Chelsea and West Ham United tried to secure Wilson’s services in January, but their efforts have come a cropper.
The England international reside at the highest place in Bournemouth’s hierarchy, and they have no intention of depriving themselves of his services unless an offer of £40m arrives.
