Report: Fulham enter the race to sign 17-cap, £20m winger from Premier League side


From the King of Corwen to the King of Craven Cottage?

Possibly, but it would cost a pretty penny to make it happen.

According to a report from Alan Nixon at The Sun, we have entered the race to try and sign 17-cap Welsh winger Harry Wilson from Liverpool.

With the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, Divock Origi and co in front of him at Anfield, it was always going to be hard for the 23-year-old to break into the first-team, which is what led him to make a number of loan moves. Now though, it looks like the stars are aligning for him to move on a permanent deal, possibly for around £20m.

I’ve got mixed feelings about this move. On the surface it looks good, his last season at Bournemouth proved that he is an adequate Premier League player, not exactly a world-beater, but good enough to hold his own, and being able to play on either flank or as a number 10 would offer a lot of flexibility and strength in depth for the upcoming season.

How much will Fulham spend this winter?

Less than £10m

More than £10m

I’m just not 100% sure about that price tag if I’m being totally honest. I think his displays whilst good, aren’t high enough to convince me to part with that kind of money for him, especially since he might not be playing every game with the likes of Anthony Knockaert, Ivan Cavaleiro, Aboubakar Kamara and Neeskens Kebano all fighting for spots (add Tom Cairney and Bobby Reid in there too if you want to play him centrally).

So if we can somehow get the asking price down, and get him playing on a regular basis as a first-choice winger (which he’s clearly capable of being), I think he’d be a welcome addition to the side. But for that much? I think we might be better off looking elsewhere.
