Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has said that the recent speculation linking Callum Wilson with a winter move to Manchester United seems pointless.

The England international has been in sparkling form of late with five goals from four league appearances and this has earned him another call-up with the Three Lions.

Amidst this, there has been the speculation that the Red Devils may launch a January move to secure his services but Howe believes it is too early to speak on the transfer gossip.

“To hear transfer links and rumours at this stage when the window is shut and a long way from being open, for me, it is pointless talking about it,” he told via Goal.com.

Wilson has netted in each of the past four league matches for the Cherries and Howe will be banking on the marksman to prove his credentials against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Cherries have a dreadful record at the Emirates Stadium with four defeats on the bounce and they will require a quick start off the blocks to take advantage of the Gunners’ vulnerability at the back.

Arsenal to reject permanent transfer offer for Nketiah

Championship leaders Leeds United are unlikely to pursue a permanent deal for Eddie Nketiah as Arsenal hold no desire to part ways with their graduate.

The England Under-21 international was hugely impressive during the club’s pre-season tour of the United States but he was still loaned out to the Peacocks amid his insistence to play regular first-team football.

Eddie has since shined for Marcelo Bielsa‘s side with four goals from six appearances in all competitions and this has included a couple of late league strikes against Brentford and Barnsley.

According to The Athletic, the Championship outfit have been impressed with the showing of their loanee and they could seek to pursue him on a permanent basis at the turn of the year.

However, their chances of sealing his services remain non-existent with Unai Emery‘s side holding no interest whatsoever in sanctioning the sale of the young marksman.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are presently the first-choice striking options at Arsenal but the latter is currently sidelined with an ankle problem until October.
