It appears increasingly likely that Wilson will depart Newcastle United this summer, despite manager Eddie Howe’s previous expectation that he would remain with the club. With just one year left on his contract at St James’ Park, Wilson is contemplating a fresh challenge elsewhere.

Replacing Wilson, who ranks second only to Alan Shearer in Premier League goals for Newcastle despite injury setbacks, would be costly. Nonetheless, Newcastle is actively seeking another striker to support Alexander Isak. They have revived their interest in Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Everton, who like Wilson, would prefer not to be the third choice at Newcastle.

According to ChronicleLive, Wilson is expected to leave Newcastle this summer after spending four years with the club. Interest in Wilson spans the Premier League, Saudi Pro League, and MLS, with Atlanta United and Charlotte FC particularly keen due to their designated player spots, which allow them to pursue players like Wilson without salary cap constraints.

Atlanta United, having lost their top scorer recently, and Charlotte FC, managed by former Aston Villa boss Dean Smith who previously tried to sign Wilson in 2020, are both in need of a prominent striker.

Despite injury setbacks, Wilson has scored 48 goals for Newcastle and is admired for his resilience and motivation.
