Some Aston Villa fans on Twitter are behind a potential move for Liverpool's Harry Wilson.

According to Sky Sports, Aston Villa are set to rival Newcastle United for the 22-year-old's signature.

Liverpool won't be loaning out Wilson again, meaning that Villa and everybody else will have to pay around £20 million - £15 million of which is up front - for the young Reds winger.

Dean Smith has already brought three wide players to Bodymoor Heath this summer - Jota, Anwar El Ghazi and Trezeguet.

That being said, he is 22 and despite a sizeable price-tag, he could be a very decent signing for the Villans.

But would he play? Arguably not by virtue of the wingers that Smith has already signed, but being a squad player for Aston Villa, and potentially earning first-team chances, is better than returning to the Championship and the player himself might fancy a stint in the West Midlands.
