Trotters boss Neil Lennon will make a move the 19-year-old if he fails to bring Northern Ireland forward Kyle Lafferty from Norwich City, although Lennon has admitted that the club’s current financial situation means that a loan deal for his compatriot looks unlikely.
That means he will move for Wilson but faces stiff competition from more than 20 clubs, according to the Daily Mail, since United boss Louis Van Gaal has allowed for the striker to join a Championship side on loan to further aid his development.
Derby County have been heavily linked with the England Under-21 international, who scored twice on his United debut in May 2014 but has played just 17 minutes of first-team action since February this year.
He made 17 appearances last season in all competition, finding the net twice, but niggling injuries have hampered his progress at Old Trafford and also fallen down the pecking order following the £36million signing of Anthony Martial from Monaco this summer.
Both Derby and Bolton are struggling for goals in the opening five matches of the 2015/16 season with the Rams scoring four and the Trotters scoring just one.
