Liverpool’s Harry Wilson set for £10m permanent move to Fulham after the Wales international was left out of the Reds’ pre-season win over Mainz by Jurgen Klopp in Austria
- Wilson has spent most of his career out on loan but is set for a permanent deal
- The winger is expected to join Fulham after spells at Cardiff and Bournemouth
- Wilson made only two first-team appearances for Juergen Klopp’s senior side
The Wales international had been attracting interest from Benfica but the Cottagers have jumped to the head of the queue and it is understood Craven Cottage now looks like his most likely destination.
Wilson is currently still at the club’s training camp in Austria but was withdrawn from the squad for Friday night’s friendly against manager Jurgen Klopp‘s former club Mainz so as not to jeopardise any transfer.

Wilson made only two first-team appearances for Liverpool, in the League Cup and FA Cup
Liverpool expect to get around £10million for the 24-year-old former academy graduate, who has made just two first-team appearances for the club – in the FA and League Cups – but has spent much of his time on loan at Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff.
Wilson made three appearances for Wales at Euro 2020 but did not have the impact he would have wanted and was sent off in the last minute of their 4-0 defeat to Denmark in the last 16.
The midfielder spent the last campaign in the Championship on loan at Cardiff City, where he scored seven goals in 33, and is now set for another season in England’s second-tier.

Fulham managed only one season back in the top flight and finished 18th in the standings.
If Wilson completes a move to Craven Cottage, he will link up with Marco Silva, the former coach of Liverpool’s rivals Everton.
Silva was named as Scott Parker’s successor after the former midfielder left the west London club by mutual consent in June.
