Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has been offered to several Championship clubs ahead of this week’s domestic window deadline in England, the Daily Mail reports.
The Mail believes that the Premier League champions are in talks with Swansea City over a potential loan, whilst the likes of Derby County, Cardiff City, and Nottingham Forest are also interested.
The newspaper states that Liverpool were hoping to send him out to another Premier League club, but that no bids came in before last week’s October 5th deadline.
That may be an eyebrow raiser to Celtic. The Glasgow Times reported after deadline day that Liverpool were solely looking for a permanent sale of the £15million-rated starlet. Celtic had seemingly wanted to take the player to Parkhead on loan.
However, it looks as though the Anfield club has had a change of heart as the EFL window gets set to shut in just two days’ time.
Could this be revisited in January?
If nothing were to happen before the deadline on Friday, then Celtic could perhaps be in an ideal position to try and land Wilson again in January.
It may only be a six-month deal until the end of the season at that stage, but if it helps us secure the 10 then nobody would be complaining.
Wilson also plays in a position that’s currently badly exposed at the minute. With right-winger James Forrest and Hatem Elhamed testing positive for the virus, only Jeremie Frimpong is free to play down our right flank. Wilson would add some clearly needed depth in case a similar incident occurs.
Then again, the wages could still be a concern. That was one of the stumbling blocks reported by the Glasgow Times. Championship clubs are more likely to be able to spend that little bit extra given the TV revenue deals down south. Liverpool will want as much of his wages eaten up as possible.
And considering he’s reportedly on the market without a penny needing to be spent on a transfer fee again, that will attract a host of suitors before tomorrow’s deadline.
So we’ll keep tabs on this one, but it looks highly unlikly that Wilson is a Liverpool player come Friday night.
