Sky Sports News understands that Liverpool are on the brink of signing defender Danny Wilson from Rangers.
Ibrox manager Walter Smith revealed to Sky Sports News reporter David Tanner that the two clubs are in advanced stages of discussions and have only the transfer fee left to agree on.
Smith also said the move could be sealed as soon as Tuesday evening, which would leave 18-year-old Wilson free to link up with the Reds at their Switzerland training camp.

It’s turning into quite a busy week for Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson. Having secured the signing of Joe Cole on a four year deal and had the bonus of hearing Steven Gerrard commit his future to the club, the former Fulham boss has now snapped up promising teenage centre back Danny Wilson.
The 18 year old Livington born Scottish Under 21 international broke into the first team picture at Ibrox last term and showed maturity beyond his years as he did his part to help Walter Smith’s side capture a league and cup double.
The deal is set to cost a total of £5m, albeit some of it in increments, and that represents something of a bargain in today’s very inflated transfer market.
