Southampton are interested in signing £25m-rated Liverpool winger Harry Wilson this summer according to Sky Sports, but Saints fans on Twitter weren’t impressed with what they saw from him as he featured for Derby County in the Championship play-off final on Monday.
Rams manager Frank Lampard and the travelling faithful would have been looking towards the Liverpool loanee to make a big impact on Monday as he looked to lead the east Midlands outfit to the Premier League, but the 22-year-old largely flattered to deceive on the day.
That was both disappointing and surprising in equal measure given he enjoyed such an impressive campaign for the club – he scored 18 goals and provided a further six assists in 48 outings for County this term.
Southampton fans may love Ralph Hasenhuttl but do the owners? Check out the video below…
The versatile player could cost a potential suitor up to £25m this summer according to Sky Sports, but Saints supporters on Twitter clearly don’t think he is worth that much.
While one individual said they “wouldn’t pay £10mil for him”, another said he “isn’t worth 15 million for me”.
Another labelled him as a “free-kick merchant”, and it will certainly be interesting to see what happens next with Wilson as the likes of the south coast outfit, Newcastle United and Brighton and Hove Albion reportedly circle.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Wilson, who I was told would “solve all of our creative problems”, has been utterly nonexistent. Thank God it was lazy journalism and we’re not actually spending TWENTY-FIVE million on him. #SaintsFC

He’s over hyped after today ?

Based on today’s performance not impressed, but he has had a decent season so I won’t rule him out on that alone. Still prefer Bowen
