Liverpool want to sign Aston Villa forward Ollie Watkins

Liverpool have reportedly “explored” the possibility of signing Aston Villa forward Ollie Watkins, according to a report.

The 25-year-old joined the Brentford Villans last summer and scored 14 goals in his debut campaign at Villa Park.

Football Insider claim that the England international’s sense of purpose, frenetic pace and air ability have caught the attention of Liverpool scouts.

He can also operate widely if needed, meaning the striker ticks every box the Merseyside giants are looking for a new striker this summer.

Watkins scored a hat-trick against Liverpool in a memorable 7-2 win last year.
