Newcastle and Aston Villa will be landing a bargain with £15m playmaker

Newcastle and Aston Villa are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson for £15million this summer, with the Reds seemingly willing to sell him on a permanent basis.

Wales Online have claimed the 22-year-old is interesting Villa and Newcastle, who are willing to wave goodbye to their academy product for £15million. However, they are also willing to send him on a loan-to-buy basis.

But if clubs want to sign the Wales international on loan first before spending money, they will have to include a permanent option for £20million. He has very little experience in the Premier League.

Wilson, though, shone on loan at Derby County last season under Frank Lampard. The new Chelsea manager turned Wilson into a central player at the Rams, away from his natural position of winger.

The former Hull City loanee found the back of the net a whopping 18 times from midfield for Derby last season, and also had the creative nous to lay on six assists for the Championship side as they reached the play-off final.


After that form last season, £15million for Wilson for any club is an absolute bargain. Aston Villa and Newcastle are more than capable of spending the eight-figure fee, which The Toon smashing their record with £40m Joelinton.

Villa have already broken their club-record transfer twice this summer, bringing in Wesley Moraes for £22million and then Tyrone Mings later on for £26.5million. So Wilson’s £15million price tag is more than achievable.

Wilson has shown the quality, wherever he has played, that he is more than capable of making it in the Premier League. For a player with his quality, at his age, £15million is a bargain for both Villa and Newcastle.
