Wilson is currently hoping to be included in Gareth Southate's next England squad. However, the striker insists he doesn't feel the pressure of being watched by big clubs: "I don't really want to talk too much about it.
"I don't want to talk my way into the squad, I want to play my way in. I just want to focus on game by game and improve my game.
"I'm still only 26, I've missed a lot of football. I'm catching up now. So yes, I'm always working at it, working on the training field, trying to improve.
"It's nice to have the achievement of scoring 50 goals. I should have had it a lot sooner but I got there in the end and now I’m looking upwards. I want to get 100 goals and reach another landmark."
