Leeds handed transfer boost in chase for ex-Rams star
Leeds United can sign former Derby County loanee Harry Wilson for a knockdown fee this summer, Football Insider is reporting.
Liverpool could listen to permanent offers for the Welsh international, who is on loan at Bournemouth.
Leeds were linked with the 23-year-old in the last two summer transfer windows, but they were beaten by Derby and Bournemouth.
He was valued at around £25m last summer, it was reported at the time, but the transfer market could look very different due to the coronavirus pandemic.
