Liverpool have been busy selling off fringe players in recent weeks and months. The Reds need to raise transfer funds, hence the number of outgoing moves. In an effort to generate future income Michael Edwards has been inserting key clauses. Harry Wilson took just 29 minutes to net on his Fulham debut; he’ll be on to bigger and better things in the coming years and Liverpool stand to benefit.
The Reds have flogged a number of players so far this summer.
Marko Grujic joined Porto in a permanent move following a successful loan spell last term.
Harry Wilson was sold to Fulham, ending a 16 year association with the Reds.
Meanwhile Liam Millar has joined Basel and Taiwo Awoniyi has signed for Union Berlin.
We’re also expecting moves for Nat Phillips, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi.
Harry Wilson scores on Fulham debut
Last weekend saw the start of the Championship season.
Harry Wilson took just 29 minutes to score on his Fulham debut.
The Welsh winger cut inside before rifling the ball into the bottom corner.
The ex-Red’s impressive performance wasn’t enough to earn three points as Middlesbrough equalised with 13 minutes of normal time remaining.
Transfer windfall in future
Goal reported that Fulham paid £12m for Harry Wilson and the Reds inserted a 15% sell-on clause.
This weekend the Welshman confirmed what we already knew: he’s too good for the Championship.
The winger showed us this when he scored 16 goals for Derby three seasons ago.
In the coming years he’ll continue to develop and as a result it’s likely that a bigger club – with no disrespect to Fulham – will come in for him.
That 15% sell-on clause could land us a tidy sum in the future.
