Liverpool braced for interest in winger as race hots up

The Reds would want up to £25m for the 22-year-old, who has enjoyed an impressive season-long loan spell at Derby, and it is claimed Newcastle, Southampton and Brighton are leading the race. It is thought Crystal Palace could also join a long list of Wilson's admirers if Wilfried Zaha leaves Selhurst Park this summer. Wilson's present club Derby are also keen on keeping him at Pride Park for the 2019/20 campaign, if they defeat Aston Villa at Wembley in the Championship play-off final on Monday. Interest in the versatile Wales international attacker has spread across Europe too, with Augsburg, Hertha Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga - and several clubs in Spain - monitoring negotiations. Wilson scored 18 goals in 52 appearances in all competitions for Derby during the regular season so it is no surprise to see so much interest in him. Despite his hot form, it is thought he will not be able to force his way into the plans of Jurgen Klopp, and will be allowed to leave at the right price.
