Leeds United have been linked with a move for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson this summer. As reported
The Sun reported at the end of last month that Leeds were keen on the player, either as a loan deal or as a permanent signing.
It certainly made sense for Leeds to be keen on the Welsh international. The talented attacker had a fine season with Derby County in the Championship last season and Leeds need more attacking recruits.
Wilson has again been in the news this week. The Mirror have suggested Liverpool could even sell the player this summer if a £21 million price-tag is met.
That said, a loan deal still appears a more likely decision for Liverpool, who will surely not want to lose a potential first-team player for the future.
But Leeds United fans can seemingly forget about bringing him to Elland Road.
The Sun journalist Alan Nixon, who wrote the initial report mentioning Leeds, has made it clear on Twitter that Wilson is likely to stay in the Premier League next season.
Coupled with The Mirror’s report of £21 million asking prices and interest from abroad, Leeds would be swimming against the tide trying to get this deal done.
At the moment, the recent Yorkshire Evening Post report suggesting interest in Wolves winger Helder Costa highlights Leeds’ most likely wide recruit.
As for Wilson, Leeds can probably forget about it in the short-term.
