PREMIER League new-boys Leeds United will scrap it out with Newcastle to get Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson on loan.
It is not thought that the Reds want to sell the 23-year-old Welshman.
Liverpool’s Harry Wilson is wanted by Leeds and Newcastle
But they will send him for another season of Prem experience after he was generally a success despite relegation for Bournemouth.
Liverpool chiefs will look for a big loan payment to take Wilson.
He is not yet ready to become part of the Premier League champions’ first-team plans.
The Northern Echo claim Toon want him for the season.
But Leeds are ready to battle it out as they look for some top talent to make an impact next term.
The Whites return to the top flight for the first time for 16 years in September.
Wilson scored seven goals in 35 appearances for Eddie Howe’s Cherries last term, scoring a couple of spectacular efforts.
Steve Bruce’s Toon are also after Chelsea striker Conor Gallagher, also wanted by a host of German clubs.
But Leeds are willing to make a permanent £15million bid for Wilson.
It is thought that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will take a close look at Wilson before making a final decision.
If Wilson believes he will struggle for game time at Anfield he may ask Anfield paymasters to get him a move.
