Sources: Brentford make approach to sign Wilson as Liverpool updated stance revealed

Brentford have made an enquiry for Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson, Football Insider has learned.

The Premier League new boys have set their sights on the forward after being put up for sale by the Merseyside giants this summer.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Brentford have contacted Liverpool to express their interest in the Wales international.

They are expected to follow up with an offer for Wilson, who will be sold if his £15m asking price is met.

As revealed by this site last month, Benfica have also made an approach for the versatile forward.

Jurgen Klopp has made up his mind to let Wilson go for good after three-and-a-half years out on loan.

The Welshman has spent the last three-and-a-half seasons at Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Derby County and Hull City.

During his time at Anfield, he has only made two senior appearances.

Each outing came in the FA Cup and League Cup respectively with both appearances totalling a combined 115 minutes.

Wilson’s best personal campaign came at Derby in 2018-19.

Under Frank Lampard, the attacker scored 18 goals in 49 games, including an outrageous free kick against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

His other loans have been less successful but were far from failures.

He bagged seven goals in all competitions for Hull, Bournemouth and Cardiff.

Wilson also has 29 Wales caps to his name and he has scored five goals for his country.

Wilson joined Liverpool as a youth player in 2005.

Brentford are preparing for their first-ever Premier League season after winning last season’s Championship playoff final.
