Liverpool are planning to offload Harry Wilson in the January transfer window, the Daily Star reports.
The Star believes that manager Jurgen Klopp wanted the winger to quit the club permanently over the summer.
But the club decided to reject a £12 million offer from Burnley. The newspaper states that Sean Dyche’s side have now ended their interest.
Yet Liverpool’s management are still want to find a suitor before the market closes, the source reports.
They state that Celtic were keen on taking the Welsh international in the summer, but that the Hoops’ board only ever had a loan deal in mind.
The Glasgow Times claimed that a deadline-day move to Celtic also would have been unlikely due to Wilson’s wage demands.
Wilson currently has just under three years on his deal, meaning the Premier League giants remain in a healthy position when it comes to talks.
With Liverpool not managing to sell the player on during the summer, it’s not inconceivable that they’d lower the fee for his services.
It looks as though our best bet of bringing Harry to Parkhead was indeed a loan switch that involved Reds paying a healthy portion of his wages.
That does not look to be in their thinking as January approaches. The club reportedly want him off the wage bill.
He managed to rack up 24 direct goal contributions in 50 games for Derby under Frank Lampard two seasons ago.
He then managed 31 PL outings with Bournemouth last term, and already has 17 Wales caps to his name at only 23 years of age.
