A fee is yet to be agreed but there is a degree of confidence a move will happen.
A switch would end the winger’s 14-year stay at Anfield after he joined the club’s under-9s.
Wilson has made just one appearance for Liverpool, against Plymouth in the FA Cup in 2017.
He spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, playing 35 times and scoring seven goals, but could not help the Cherries beat relegation from the Premier League.
The 23-year-old has also had spells at Crewe, Hull and Derby, almost helping the Rams to the Premier League in 2019 before losing the Sky Bet Championship play-off final to Aston Villa.
The 31-year-old is in the final year of his contract at the Amex and could complete a deal before Saturday’s visit of Southampton.
They remain determined to keep James Tarkowski having rejected two offers from West Ham for the defender.

“We don’t need the finance so therefore we’re in good shape to tick all the boxes that keep players at football clubs and keep playing well.”
The winners will be announced on October 1 at the Champions League group stage draw ceremony.
