As per Football Insider, Liverpool are prepared to let Harry Wilson go for half of the £25m they wanted for him last summer.
Wilson, who has spent this campaign on loan at Bournemouth, is said to be a target for Leeds United, but the potential transfer fee may have been a stumbling block.
However, the current pandemic could well lower the Anfield outfit’s demands, and the report says that their new asking price could well be around half what it was just 12 months ago.
Despite Bournemouth struggling at the wrong end of the table this campaign, Wilson has been in good form during his time on the pitch. In 19 Premier League starts, he managed seven goals, which was only beaten by striker Callum Wilson for the Cherries.
That form follows on from an impressive term spent under Frank Lampard at Derby. As the Rams made the Championship play-off final, the 23-year-old scored an impressive 18 goals in all competitions, mainly from the wing.
Would you like to sell Harry Wilson?
Michael Edwards has been known for getting very good fees for players who have underperformed – he sold Jordon Ibe and Dominic Solanke for £15m and £19m respectively when they had only scored 12 goals between them by the time of their departures. Selling Wilson for less than both of them when he has already shown his quality on a more regular basis would surely be an error for Liverpool and may damage Edwards’ reputation slightly. Irregardless of the current pandemic, the Reds can do better than that.
