Liverpool set to be stuck with Harry Wilson with Burnley pulling plug on transfer over £20m asking price

BURNLEY are set to pull the plug on their bid to sign Liverpool wide man Harry Wilson.

The Reds are looking for a £20million deal to allow the Wales international to leave Anfield on a permanent basis.

Sean Dyche has shown interest in recent days although the Clarets felt the asking price was too steep.

Sources close to the former Bournemouth man say the trail has now gone cold.

The Turf Moor boss was asked on Saturday if the final days of the transfer window were important for him.

Dyche said: “I don’t think they are that important. I don’t think there will be anything happening.”

Burnley could still sign players from the Championship for another couple of weeks after Monday – and have done much of their business there in recent years.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have made contact with Tottenham over a move for Paulo Gazzaniga as they eye an emergency transfer following Alisson's injury.

Jurgen Klopp revealed the Reds would be without their star stopper for around six weeks with a shoulder injury.

And now, the Independent are claiming Liverpool are in for Tottenham No3 Gazzaniga as back-up to Adrian.

The Spaniard endured a torrid evening in the 7-2 defeat at Aston Villa – particularly his howler for the first goal, where he passed the ball away under very little pressure.

Klopp has confessed Alisson has "no chance" of being fit for Liverpool's next game – the Merseyside derby against league-leaders Everton immediately after the international break.

Following Joe Hart's summer arrival at Tottenham, Gazzaniga has been pushed further down the pecking order behind club captain Hugo Lloris.

And he could now join Liverpool in a bid to keep Adrian on his toes and give the Reds a more senior back-up stopper.

The current Kop No3 is youngster Caoimhin Kelleher – who was on the bench for the 7-2 Midlands mauling.
