Bournemouth move for Liverpool schemer
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is considering a move for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson due to David Brooks' injury blow.
Wales international Brooks faces around three months on the sidelines with an ankle injury suffered in pre-season and Howe is keen to bring in some creativity in midfield to cover.
Although not a like-for-like replacement, winger Wilson has emerged as a potential target for the Cherries and reports claim they have entered into talks with Liverpool regarding a potential loan deal.
Earlier in the summer it had been claimed the Reds would be open to offers of around £20million for Wilson but it is now understood they are not looking to sell the Welshman outright as he has impressed in pre-season.
Wilson spent last season on loan with Derby in the Championship and now Liverpool want him to gain Premier League experience elsewhere.
The Anfield club want assurances Wilson will get game time, and they may include an option to recall the youngster in the January transfer window in any loan deal.
A number of clubs have been linked with the winger over the course of the summer, including Aston Villa and Newcastle, but Bournemouth are now believed to be leading the race for his signature.
