Liverpool winger Harry Wilson on the verge of joining Swansea

Liverpool is set to offload winger Harry Wilson to Championship side Swansea City ahead of the domestic window deadline.

Wilson had been linked with a host of Premier League side before the deadline day but a deal wasn’t struck with Liverpool said to have wanted to offload him on a permanent deal.

Goal now reports that the Welsh winger whose potion at the club isn’t guaranteed wants regular football and would be joining Swansea to boost his chances of featuring for his national team ahead of the 202 Euros.

Wilson returned to the Premier League champions this summer following a productive loan spell at Bournemouth last season but no club was willing to pay the £20m asking price from The Reds with Burnley seeing an offer of around £12m plus add-ons rejected late in the window.

Jurgen Klopp and his team, however, are willing to sanction another temporary stint as a host of Championship clubs have shown an interest in the player ahead of their October 16 deadline.

Liverpool is said to have been impressed by Swansea following the success of striker Rhian Brewster last season, the England U21 international scoring 11 goals in 22 appearances to fire Steve Cooper’s side into the playoffs; the player moving permanently to Sheffield United in the window.

Cooper previously worked as an academy coach at Liverpool and won plaudits for his nurturing of young talent during his role with England’s youth sides, guiding the U17 side-including the likes of Brewster, Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho.
