Paper Talk: Huge £25m bid comes in for young Liverpool forward

Liverpool are willing to sell a young star amid talk of a £25m approach from Bournemouth, while Everton could follow up the Moise Kean deal by signing another four players, according to Wednesday’s newspapers.



Liverpool will tell Harry Wilson his future is in his hands amid reports that Bournemouth are set to bid a huge £25million for the young forward.

Wilson enjoyed an outstanding season for Derby County last season as the Rams reached the play-off final and his return to Liverpool has seen Jurgen Klopp challenge the young forward to prove he is worthy of a place in the Reds side.

But Wilson comes with an army of admirers and The Sun claims in an exclusive that Eddie Howe’s side are ready to spend £25m to bring him to the south coast before the transfer window shuts.

The paper says Howe sees Wilson as cover and competition for David Brooks and Ryan Fraser and is seen as someone who could adapt quickly to their style of play.

And Liverpool are keeping an open mind over the sale, with Klopp ready to leave the final decision in the player’s hands: move to Bournemouth or stay at Liverpool and fight for his place at Anfield.

But if he does decide to move, it’s reported that Liverpool won’t stand in the player’s way with the European champions happy to accept the £25m sale of the 22-year-old.

The Daily Star also claims Aston Villa are readying an approach of £20m, while Newcastle are also said to be monitoring developments.
