Liverpool eye £20m for Wilson amid transfer interest from Premier League quartet

Liverpool have put a £20 million price tag on Harry Wilson amid interest from Leeds, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Wilson, 23, wants regular top-flight football next season after scoring seven Premier League goals on loan at Bournemouth and Jurgen Klopp is prepared to let him leave Anfield.

The champions value Wilson at £20million, even though the Wales winger has only made one substitute appearance for them in the FA Cup.

Liverpool feel Wilson has much potential, while his value is also bolstered by the fact he has three years remaining on his Reds contract.

Leeds are leading the chase for Wilson, who scored 16 goals and made four assists on loan at Derby during the 2018-19 campaign, and have tried before to tempt him to Elland Road.

They are more attractive because they can now offer him Premier League football, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side face competition from Newcastle, Palace and Southampton.

The Magpies are no longer set to have the summer cash injection that was expected as their takeover fizzled out.

Palace meanwhile could be on the lookout for a replacement for Wilfried Zaha who is poised to leave the Eagles.

He was linked with Arsenal and Everton last summer before he ended up staying at Selhurst Park.

Southampton have long succeeded from adding English talent and may again do so after their second-half of the season ensured them a midtable finish.

Wilson scored seven times for the Cherries despite their relegation from the Premier League.

It confirmed that the Welshman is capable of playing in the top flight having previously impressed at Derby.
