Report: 'Magic' Liverpool player closing in on a move away from Anfield

Liverpool winger Harry Wilson is reportedly closing in on a move away from Anfield.

PA, as relayed by The 42, claims the 24-year-old is likely to make a permanent move to Fulham.

Wilson had been attracting interest from Benfica but the Cottagers are now frontrunners for the Liverpool gem’s signature, added the report.

However, he was withdrawn from the squad for Friday night’s friendly against Mainz so as not to jeopardise any transfer, claimed PA.

Liverpool are apparently expecting to get around £10million for Wilson.

Liverpool set to sell “magic” player?

Wilson looks unlikely to make the grade at Anfield but he’s got all the makings of a successful career.

During the past four loans at Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff, he has had a direct hand in 57 goals in just over 100 appearances.

Former Cardiff boss Neil Harris deemed him “magic” after a 3-2 win over Birmingham in December last year (BBC Sport).

He scored the Bluebirds’ first and second goals, then provided the corner for Sean Morrison to complete a comeback victory.

Wilson has also done well for Wales, winning 29 caps, scoring five goals and featuring at Euro 2020.
