Aston Villa and Newcastle are reportedly going head to head in a bid to sign Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson this summer after his wonderful spell on loan at Derby last term – and Villa fans are desperate to see him join.
The Daily Mirror claim Liverpool have slapped a whopping £25million price tag on the Wales international, after the 22-year-old shone for Derby on loan under Frank Lampard last season, as they reached the play-off final.
Lampard pushed Wilson into the middle of the park after landing the former Hull City ace on a season-long loan from Anfield, and the left-footed playmaker dazzled in the Championship.
He scored 18 goals as well as laying on six assists for Derby, and many believed his form was good enough to break into Jurgen Klopp’s senior side. But with the likes of Naby Keita, Gini Wijnaldum and more, it is unlikely.
Now, Newcastle and Villa have become interested in landing the Wales ace, despite his enormous asking price of £25million. It remains to be seen if either side can afford his enormous asking price.
Villa fans have reacted on Twitter to the reported news that their club could break the bank this summer to sign Wilson from Liverpool, and many are desperate to see him in claret and blue.
Harry Wilson will be a fantastic player £20 million now us alot. But he could worth double that is a couple of years if he plays regular #avfc

Newcastle United & Aston Villa in talks with Liverpool to sign Harry Wilson. I know who I'd choose to play for and it certainly wouldn't be Steve Bruce over Dean Smith or a Newcastle owner who won't buy many players over a super rich Aston Villa. See you soon Harry. #avfc
