A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Daily Record stated that Aston Villa are leading the race for Rangers youngster Rory Wilson. It has been claimed that the Villans are eyeing a move for the Scottish full-back during the summer transfer window.

Wilson’s Recent Rise In Scottish Football

Wilson has made a name for himself in the youth ranks of Rangers after helping his team win the Scottish Youth Cup last week. The 16-year-old has also got a good goal-scoring record on the international stage as he has registered seven goals in eight matches for Scotland’s Under-17 side this season across all fronts. However, the gifted prospect is yet to make an appearance in senior football.

The Scottish teenager is a forward on the rise, so it is no wonder that the Villans are showing interest in acquiring his services during the summer transfer period. However, Wilson is still quite raw and would need time to prove himself at the highest level. Even then, there is no denying that he has got the right mentality to make a real impact when gets a chance to feature in top-flight football someday.

Aston Villa Leading The Race For Wilson: Is He A Prospect For The Future?

Wilson has proven himself as a natural finisher in the final third after establishing himself as a consistent goal-getter in the youth levels of Scottish football.

The Rangers will only get better with each season and has got the potential to become a success story at Villa Park if Aston Villa decide to secure his signature this summer.

Wilson is currently not good enough to feature for Steven Gerrard‘s first XI. However, with time, he could turn out to be a shrewd buy for the Villans as he has got the ceiling to become a future star in European football. At the tender age of 16, he has already enjoyed success in youth football which makes him a good, long-term option for Gerrard to pursue in this off-season.

There is no denying that Wilson is a prospect to watch out for in the coming seasons. Thus, the West Midlands club should consider going all out to land him when the transfer window commences later this year.
