Wilson has been tipped for his first international call-up ahead of this month’s games against the USA and Croatia after an excellent start to the season that has seen him score six goals.
England No 2 Steve Holland will run the rule over Wilson in Saturday’s early game against Manchester United, where a good performance could persuade Southgate to call up the 26-year-old when he reveals his squad on Thursday.

Holland will head to the Emirates Stadium from Bournemouth to watch Arsenal entertain Liverpool.
Southgate will be at Goodison Park as Everton host Brighton on Saturday to monitor Toffees centre back Michael Keane and Brighton defender Lewis Dunk, who was called-up for last month’s games against Croatia and Spain.
On Sunday, Southgate will also be at Manchester City versus Southampton, while Holland will watch Chelsea against Crystal Palace, where Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will aim to impress.
