Wilson is nearing £ 12million move to Fulham

Harry Wilson has set personal terms with Fulham ahead of a £ 12m move from Liverpool.

The Welsh international has not cemented his place in the Reds starting XI since graduating from the academy and has been loaned out for five of the last six seasons.

Jurgen Klopp is actively looking for frontline reinforcements this summer after Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane both saw disappointing campaigns last season – but Wilson is not being offered his chance to claim a first-team spot at Anfield.

The Athletic reports that the Welshman is about to move to Fulham with contract talks already closed. Wilson has been given permission to leave the Reds’ training camp in Austria, and once a medical exam is completed, the deal will be signed off.

A number of sites have inquired about the possibility of a move from Wilson over the past few years, with the Reds assuming they previously put a price of £ 25 million on him.

However, their drive to generate transfer funds has resulted in their slashing the 24-year-old’s valuation to £ 15m. The Cottagers were unwilling to adjust the price they were being offered but an agreement has now been reached that will give Liverpool £ 12m from the deal.

Wilson is unlikely to be Anfield’s last exit this summer as Klopp seeks to sack some of the club’s fringe players.

Liverpool have already approved Marko Grujic’s departure to Porto for a fee of around £ 10m, while Taiwo Awoniyi is joining Union Berlin for £ 6m.

A slew of other players are believed to be on sale this summer, including Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, and Klopp may not be able to bring in any new faces until further sales are confirmed.
