Liverpool winger Harry Wilson will become Marco Silva’s first Fulham signing in a deal worth around £10m, according to various reports this afternoon.

Wilson had reconciled himself to a permanent exit from Anfield following this summer’s European Championships after a succession of loans in recent seasons. The Welsh international spent last season on loan with Cardiff City, scoring seven goals in 38 matches. He scored eight times in 35 appearances for Bournemouth the previous season, whilst his most successful campaign came at Derby County, where he scored nineteen goals in 49 games as the Rams reached the play-off final under Frank Lampard.

The 24 year-old, who has only made three senior appearances in six years at Liverpool, has won 29 caps for his country – scoring five times at international level – and made three appearances for Wales at Euro 2020. He was sent off in the dying embers of their second round defeat at the hands of Denmark.

Wilson, a clever passer and a set piece specialist, had been the subject of negotiations between Fulham and Liverpool over the past few days. The Premier League club were holding out for an offer matching their £15m valuation, but appear to have accepted a Fulham bid that falls some way short of that figure. Wilson has been left out of Liverpool’s friendly with Mainz this afternoon as a deal is believed to be extremely close.
