Young Liverpool talent Harry Wilson had a decent year out on loan with Derby County as Aston Villa pipped them to promotion back to the Premier League in our Wembley clash.
The 22-year-old Welsh international attacking midfielder made 46 starting appearances for Frank Lampard’s side, with three additional showings from the bench and he played a key part in their Play-Off run with 16 goals scored and four assists provided.
Speculation linking him with Villa, and others, is certainly not new but now the Sun have claimed that Liverpool have no intention of selling him this summer, so have slapped a £15million price tag on his head to ‘price him out of a sale’.
With Liverpool said to prefer to loan him to a Premier League club next season so he can continue his development, given the spending in the modern game I failed to see how a £15million valuation could price any top flight club out of a move. Given some of the more bizarre valuations doing the rounds this summer, the Sun have effectively not noticed that the fee is more of a come and get him in reality.
It is the Sun though, so it can safely be disbelieved anyway. The same page also plays catch up on claims that Brentford have slapped a £20million fee on Said Benrahma which I’ve already covered.
