The Verdict: Should Wolves pay Liverpool’s asking price of £25m for Wilson?

Per Football Insider, Wolves are plotting a swoop to sign Liverpool’s Harry Wilson.

The attacker has been in majestic form on loan at Derby in the Championship this season, scoring 18 goals from a variety of positions, guiding them to the play-off final.

The 22-year-old has predominantly played out wide and according to the report, could be available for £25m after Jurgen Klopp gave the green light for a possible sale if suitors meet their valuation.

Wilson is a highly promising player and it’s no surprise to see him attracting interest from a Premier League club.

Considering Liverpool boast a phenomenal front three it is highly unlikely he’d get game time at Anfield. With that in mind, a move elsewhere would make sense.

But what do those at Football FanCast towers make of a possible switch for Wilson?

Here they give their verdicts on whether Wolves should cough up the reported fee Liverpool are asking for.

Luke Glanville:

“In my opinion, Wolves should pay the full asking price and sign Harry Wilson as soon as possible. £25 million means little in today’s market and to secure one of the brightest young attacking players in English football is an absolute steal. Just a year younger, Wilson can be the player Nuno Espirito Santo thought he was getting in Adama Traore last summer, only for the Spaniard to disappoint. The Liverpool talent of a similar age could slot into his place at Molineux and even allow the club to get shot of the inconsistent Traore – he could still fetch a pretty fee. At this price, 22-year-old Wilson, who deserves to be playing at the highest level, is a no-brainer for Wolves.”

Harry Sherlock:

“It’s a steep asking price and the answer, logically, is probably no. Wilson hasn’t proved that he can do it at the top level yet and Wolves already have a pretty solid attacking unit. Wilson can obviously improve and grow but one feels that he needs another loan move to refine his skills before earning a big move to another major Premier League club. Paying £25m at this point would be a risky punt. Wolves are best off looking elsewhere.”

James Beavis:

“Yes, they should. Wilson has shown during his spell with Derby County just how much potential he has, and at 22 years of age he has the world at his feet. £25m may seem like a lot for a player with no Premier League experience, but he has more than shown he is ready to make the step up. This is the man who would get the Molineux crowd on their feet with the quality of his set pieces.”
