Liverpool transfer: London-based duo linked with Reds winger
Fulham and Brentford are realistic options for Liverpool flyer Harry Wilson. The Wales international will be allowed to leave this summer and Benfica have also been linked.
Goal claims, however, that the London-based duo are far more likely destinations for the 24-year-old.
Last season saw Wilson shine on loan at Cardiff City. He scored seven goals and claimed 12 assists as the Bluebirds enjoyed a pretty decent campaign.
The Reds are keen to offload the player this summer. He has two years remaining on his current contract and is thought to be valued at £15 million.
Brentford will have some money to spend this summer. They will play in the Premier League for the first time and will make an assault on the transfer market.
For London rivals Fulham, they will be back in the Championship. As a result, the £15 million could prove tricky to fork out in one go.
Wilson would be an attractive signing for both clubs. During 2019/20 he scored seven goals on loan at Bournemouth, gaining invaluable Premier League experience.
He’s played just twice for Liverpool and the time looks right to leave. Boss Jurgen Klopp will hope to do some business this summer. In order to do so, however, some players could need to leave.
It is thought that Wilson earns £60,000-a-week at Anfield. That would leave both of the interested parties plenty to weigh up ahead of a deal that wouldn’t come cheap.
Roy Keane recently had praise for Wilson. After he netted for Wales back in November, he told ITV Football (11/11; 11:45pm): “I loved this goal. It’s outstanding, beautiful. I can watch it all night. Fantastic goal.”
The time has come for Wilson to leave Liverpool
If the young winger is going to really fulfill his potential, he needs to put some roots down somewhere.
Both Brentford and Fulham would provide attractive options, with each club possessing different ambitions.
The Cottagers are keen to get themselves back into the Premier League, whilst for Thomas Frank, he will want to keep his team there.
Wilson has bags of potential and on his day, he boasts match-winning qualities. It’s fair to say that going out on loan isn’t doing anyone any favours and he must now leave permanently.
