Is this sentence wrong? "Das Kind wollte eine Trommel zu haben"? When do you use "zu"?

Other examples: I want to learn German Ich will deutsch zu lernen

etc..

How would you say this using the past participle? I am getting marked wrong for "Der Junge hat eine Trommel gewollt" and "Der Junge hat eine Trommel zu haben gewollt."

I also tried the sentence with "das Kind."
