Cardiff City have enquired about the prospect of signing Harry Wilson on loan next season, according to Wales Online.
The Liverpool winger has spent the last season on loan with the Bluebirds and has made quite an impression on supporters and the club manager Mick McCarthy.
Despite a steady start to the season under Neil Harris, the 24-year-old really kicked on in the second half of the campaign and ended up being one of Cardiff’s most influential players.
In 38 appearances for the club, Wilson scored seven goals and created an impressive 12 more for his teammates as the club fell just short in their hopes of securing a play-off spot.
With McCarthy now looking to build his squad ahead of the new season, it seems that a move for the former Derby County and Bournemouth loanee could be a move that is desirable for the Bluebirds.
But reports have claimed that Cardiff have asked about signing the player next term, it’s said that the chances of pulling off such a deal again ‘appear to be slim’.
Whether that will deter the Bluebirds remains to be seen, but if there’s an offer on the table from the Premier League or the top of the Championship then there’s a chance that Cardiff could end up disappointed.

Signing Harry Wilson on loan would be massive for Cardiff City, but I just can’t see it happening.
The Liverpool man is a quality player and to be honest, I was surprised to see him playing back in the Championship again this term after spending time with Bournemouth in the Premier League.
First team opportunities are clearly going to be limited under Jurgen Klopp, but I’d expect him to be back in the top flight again next term.
With the greatest of respect to Cardiff, I think that he’s too good to return to South Wales and that could end their hopes of signing him again next season.
