Harry Wilson is being targeted by a growing number of Premier League clubs for a £20million-plus summer transfer.

Wilson, 22, has shone on loan at Derby County from Liverpool this season.

The Wales international has flourished under the guidance of Rams boss Frank Lampard.

Wilson, who can operate in central midfield, out wide, or off the front, has scored 18 goals ahead of Monday’s Championship Play-off Final against Aston Villa.

Now as many as six Premier League sides are keeping tabs on his situation, ahead of a summer scrap for his services.

Bournemouth , Newcastle , Southampton and Brighton are the top-flight contingent asking for Liverpool to keep them abreast of the Reds’ plans for Wilson next season.

Ex-Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is also monitoring Wilson at Leicester , while Wolves have also checked him out.

Derby themselves will also push ahead with their own plan to hang onto Wilson if they beat Villa at Wembley on Monday.

The Rams are also keen to hang on to the 22-year-old if they gain promotion to the Premier by beating Aston Villa in Monday’s play-off final.

Wilson is also attracting interest from Germany from Hertha Berlin – who have been holding talks with Liverpool over turning Marko Grujic’s loan deal permanent – and Europa League semi-finalists Eintracht Frankfurt.

Big money offers will certainly tempt Liverpool to cash in on the homegrown product.

However, a waiting game is set to ensue, with Wilson likely to be given the opportunity to play his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans in pre-season.



Can Wilson cut it in the Premier League?

With a number of Reds’ stars involved in international tournaments this summer – be it European qualifiers, the UEFA Nations League, Copa America or Africa Cup of Nations – homegrown Wilson could force his way into plans for next term.

Wrexham-born Wilson isn’t paying attention to speculation however, admitting it would be “foolish” to look past his first appearance at Wembley next week.

“I’d be foolish if I started looking too far ahead now. I’m happy with how things have gone here, but when you’ve put so much into a campaign, like we all have at Derby.

“I’d be letting myself down if I was stood here thinking about the summer, or about next season or about what the future holds.”
