Report: Burnley open talks with Liverpool to sign £20m-rated attacker
Wilson has made just one competitive appearance for the Reds in 2017 and has spent the past two-and-a-half seasons on loan with Hull City, Derby County and Bournemouth.
He was one of the Cherries’ top performers last term with seven goals in the top-flight, but has still been unable to break into Jurgen Klopp’s side first-team plans.
As per Standard Sport, the Clarets have made initial contact with the Reds over a potential deal for Wilson, but they have yet to make a formal bid.
The Clarets are in need for attacking reinforcements in what could be another testing season for them. Wilson would be a quality addition to their ranks.
Liverpool were looking for a fee of around £20m for Wilson earlier this summer and it remains to be seen whether the Clarets can meet the price.
Sean Dyche’s side have experienced a quiet transfer window and they have signed only goalkeeper Will Norris from Wolverhampton Wanderers to date.
