Liverpool have reportedly rejected a loan offer for Harry Wilson from Championship side Swansea City, with the deal being described as a ‘non-starter.’
According to Stuart James of The Athletic, the Welsh club offered a deal that wasn’t financially sufficient for the Reds, despite said to be in the ‘driving seat’ for the 23-year-old.
For a player of Wilson’s quality, who would have moved to another Premier League club for no less than £10million, a substantial loan fee would have to be coughed up.
Wilson was linked with a move away from Anfield all summer long, with Newcastle and Leeds United both said to be interested – according to the Liverpool Echo.
Joining another club would be a wise move for the Welshman, now that he’s 23 it’s best he finds a place where he can solidify himself as a key player.
With Xherdan Shaqiri staying at Liverpool for the foreseeable future, the Reds are more than stacked on the right-flank, with Takumi Minamino also offering depth.
Wilson will be earmarked for a move again in January if a deal can’t be agreed before the domestic window closes, but it’s unlikely he’ll feature much for Liverpool before then.
