Report: Cardiff, Derby and Swansea want Liverpool winger Harry Wilson

The Championship trio are named as potentially interested parties for the youngster’s signature.

Cardiff City, Swansea City and Derby County have been linked with the signing of Liverpool winger Harry Wilson on loan, according to Wales Online.

The 23-year-old scored seven times in the Premier League for Bournemouth last season but is now back at Liverpool.

He was handed the chance to impress Jurgen Klopp in a recent Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal but is way down the pecking order at Anfield.

Liverpool demanded £20 million for the Wales international and didn’t receive a lot of interest for the left-footer.

With that in mind, the Premier League champions might now let him leave on loan with a host of Championship clubs keen.

Wilson enjoyed a standout campaign with the Rams back during 2018/19, scoring 18 goals and registering six assists as Derby reached the play-off final.

As a result, Derby could hold the aces, although Cardiff and Swansea will hold significant pulling power too.

 

The Swans, in particular, could be an interesting move, given how well Rhian Brewster did on loan at the Liberty Stadium last season.

Cardiff will hold their own aspirations of reaching the Premier League and they too might fancy stealing in for Wilson.

Whoever gets the green light to sign the Liverpool man will be getting a player who has already proved himself at Championship level.

New start

He’d have to be seen as a real coup should any second-tier club land him and his presence could instantly propel them into promotion contention.

Wilson has played twice for Liverpool but the time looks right to now further his career elsewhere.

The £20 million valuation probably priced out plenty of Premier League clubs this summer but a move to the Championship looks like a wise one.

If he goes to a club chasing promotion he could be back in the top-flight in no time.
