Stumbling block emerges as Liverpool look to thrash out late Harry Wilson, EFL transfer

Published

Harry Wilson may be priced out of a loan move from Liverpool with the Premier League champions demanding any prospective takers pay over £1m for the winger.

The Welsh international remained at Anfield after the international deadline passed earlier this month, meaning a switch to the Championship was the only realistic way he would get game time ahead of January.

Understandably, a lot of interest emerged in Wilson, with journalist John Percy stating that Cardiff City, Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Swansea City had all expressed their desire to sign the 23-year-old on a temporary basis.

However, Football Insider have claimed that the Reds are demanding a fee ‘in excess’ of £1m for their player and that has put those clubs off for now.

It remains to be seen whether Liverpool drop their asking price or if a club pays it before the deadline, which is at 5pm on Friday.

If a club does sign Wilson, they will be getting someone who is proven at this level. He scored 16 goals as Frank Lampard’s side reached the play-off final two years ago.

The verdict

This is a real shame for the wide man as if he doesn’t secure a switch this week then he realistically isn’t going to play from now until January.

You can understand why clubs are reluctant to commit what would be a pretty significant sum on a loan player and Liverpool must know they will benefit from getting Wilson out playing regularly if they want to attract a permanent buyer in the New Year.

So, hopefully they lower their demands and and agreement is reached but this update isn’t positive.
