LIVERPOOL defender Danny Wilson is Blackpool’s latest transfer target.

The 19-year-old Scotland international is available on loan and the Seasiders are believed to be leading the race for his signature.

Wilson, who is a left-sided central defender, was high on Ian Holloway’s wish list in the summer but a deal couldn’t be done.

The Gazette understands that Wilson had been set to join Nottingham Forest until the sacking of Steve McClaren killed that deal and opened the door for him to join Liverpool team-mate Jonjo Shelvey at Bloomfield Road.

Wilson made eight appearances for the Reds last season, including games in the Europa League and Carling Cup.

A former Under-17, 19 and 21 international, Wilson broke into Craig Levein’s senior Scotland side last season and now has five full caps.

Meanwhile, talks are continuing between Blackpool and striker Lomana Lualua.

The former Newcastle and Portsmouth hitman has been training with the Seasiders and played in an inter-squad friendly at Bloomfield Road last week. He impressed during the practice game, scoring with a superb 30-yard strike.
