Aston Villa the latest side tipped to swoop for Liverpool’s Harry Wilson

Speculation in the English media over the last 24 hours suggests that Aston Villa have joined the list of clubs interested in the signature of Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson.

23-year-old Wilson has been on the books of Liverpool for 15 years, having made his way through the club’s youth ranks.

To this point, however, despite being highly-regarded, the versatile midfielder is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Reds.

The last couple of seasons have seen Wilson farmed out on a trio of consecutive loan spells.

After impressing with both Hull City and Derby County in the Championship, the Welsh international joined Bournemouth last summer, in a bid to adapt to the rigours of top-flight football.

And Wilson, for the most part, subsequently went on to build on his reputation during his time at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite having fallen out of favour over the course of Bournemouth’s run-in, he managed to feature in all but 7 of the Cherries’ 38 Premier League outings.

Wilson also chipped in with 7 goals, with his free-kick prowess a particular highlight.

Villa join hunt?

The 23-year-old’s future, however, looks set to lie firmly away from the southwest.

Bournemouth were of course one of the 3 sides to have been sent packing from the Premier League following the campaign’s conclusion last month.

With it also highly unlikely that he would be in line for any sort of consistent game-time at Anfield next season, though, a permanent Liverpool exit over the coming weeks now looks increasingly likely for Wilson.

In turn, the likes of Leeds United and Southampton have been named as keen suitors.

And, as outlined above, yet another Premier League outfit are today said to have made their interest in Wilson’s signature known.

The side in question? Aston Villa.

As per a report from the Sun, Villans boss Dean Smith is on the lookout for creative reinforcements this summer, with Brentford standout Said Benrahma a key target.

However, the Bees’ hefty asking price remains a major stumbling block, with Smith and co. therefore ready to switch their attentions to Wilson.

Liverpool are said to value their out-of-favour midfielder/winger at around £20 million, whilst Villa would be prepared to stump up a fee in excess of £15 million.

The aforementioned interest of Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, meanwhile, is also outlined in the Sun’s report.
