Fulham and Huddersfield Reportedly Want Harry Wilson

New, comments

Rumour has it a few clubs want Wilson, but it’s expected he’ll stay at Liverpool at least through pre-season.

After a promising Hull City loan, most of the talk surrounding Harry Wilson has been that Liverpool would give the 21-year-old a chance to earn a first team role in pre-season before deciding where his future lies.

If he plays well, he could stay as wing depth behind Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané, and any new signing on the wing—like Stoke’s Xerdan Shaqiri. If he doesn’t, speculation was he would join Steven Gerrard at Rangers.

Now, though, a number of tabloid reports have Huddersfield and newly promoted Fulham interested. And not on loan, either, with The Mirror and local Huddersfield outlets claiming a permanent move is possible.

The reported figure of £7M, though, is cause for skepticism, as it seems highly unlikely in the current market that Liverpool would sell a promising club trained player for so little, even with a buyback or sell-on clause.

Double that amount and Liverpool might just start to consider it—as long as there is a buyback or sell-on clause included in the deal. Still, for now the assumption has to be that such a deal is unlikely.

Especially given just how well Wilson played for Hull last season, it would be a shock not to see him at the club during pre-season at least—and his performance then will likely be what determines his future.
