It was always going to be on of those transfer rumours that never really had much mileage in it especially when it was said that Liverpool wanted a sale rather than another loan deal for Harry Wilson.
Yesterday we had the news that Brentford are preparing a £10m bid that should be enough to see Wilson make the move to London and play a part in their first ever season in the Premier League.
The Swans have had an interest in Wilson a couple of times now. Last season we appeared to be in the front of a queue to sign him until the wage requirements got too high and he spent the season just up the M4 at Cardiff City instead. This time around we have been reported as being keen to bring him to the better half of South Wales but with Liverpool looking to sell then our only way of doing that would surely have been promotion and a permanent deal.
So maybe it is with some level of irony that the side that beat us at Wembley to that last Premier League place appear to be the likely destination for one of Wales’ Euro 2020 squad.
Liverpool are expected to be ready to let Wilson go with him now further down the pecking order at Anfield and a £10m deal is likely to be enough to make that happen.
