Liverpool can get a boost in any Harry Wilson sale tomorrow. The Reds are reportedly fielding offers.
The BBC claims Liverpool are open to a Harry Wilson sale. There are a few suitors already, too.
Benfica are interested, they say. Liverpool expect the Portuguese giants to make a formal bid soon, though they’re not alone. Both Brentford and West Bromwich Albion are considering moves.
Liverpool have a price in mind, however – over £12m. They rejected a bid from Burnley for under that last summer and would apparently want more than that this time around, too.
So with that in mind, they could get a boost tomorrow.
Harry Wilson sale
We don’t really expect Wilson to be with Liverpool next season. He’s never had a place in the first-team squad and it’s difficult to see one going forward.
A sale makes complete sense and even more so with Euro 2020 going on. As we’ve mentioned before, the competition is a wonderful opportunity for squad players to drive up prices.
Particularly for Wilson, though. The 24-year-old was a little out of the limelight in the Championship last season but he’s a player who can catch the eye at a moment’s notice.
He has a chance to do that tomorrow against Denmark. Wales will play their first knockout game of the tournament and while Wilson may not start, you can guarantee he gets on the pitch if his team needs a goal.
And with interest already growing, an eye-catching moment would effectively guarantee that someone makes the jump and pays Liverpool’s price. Wilson just needs to offer a reminder of what he can do.
We imagine at least one of the three clubs would take a jump of a few extra million on the back of that – if only because they’re worried the others might. One great counter-attack or a worldie free-kick – that’s all Liverpool need to get their money.
