Sky Sports claim that at least three Premier League clubs are chasing Harry Wilson. Liverpool have set a £25m asking price for Wilson.

Wilson has had a strong season with Derby County. The Rams have made the Play-Off final, for one thing, with the Welshman top scorer with 16 goals.

He’s added four assists to that, too, and while he’s not the finished product, Wilson has proven that he’s a very bright talent.

But does he have a future at Liverpool? It’s a difficult question to answer. Liverpool have plenty of forward players in front of Wilson, after all. It means the 22-year-old may not be able to develop properly at Anfield, regardless of his ability.

It makes the interest from elsewhere more enticing – £25m is nothing to pass up for a player with 18 months of senior experience. But any deal should come on the condition of a buyback clause.

 

Liverpool’s asking price for Wilson is very high, which makes a buyback clause difficult to negotiate. But given the player’s promise, it should take precedence.

Liverpool have no desperate need for money, for one thing, and shaving a little off the fee for a buyback option is a price worth paying, if it comes to that.

A young, British product of Liverpool’s academy – Wilson could well be worth far more to the club than £25m in a few years.
