Fulham frontrunners to signal £15m-rated Liverpool ace Wilson
Fulham have emerged as the “most likely” target for Liverpool wingers this summer, according to Goal, as the Cottagers lead a number of teams interested in the 24-year-old.
Goal’s Neil Jones has noted that Fulham has long had a keen interest in Wilson to add to their squad and get promoted back to the Premier League at the earliest opportunity.
Wilson has made a good impression on his loan from the Reds to England’s second division, collecting 30 goals and 20 assists in 93 championship games with Hull, Derby and most recently Cardiff.
Goal reports that Premier League signing Brentford is also interested in the Welsh international. Portuguese giant Benfica are keen but have explored a loan deal that Liverpool won’t sanction.
Jürgen Klopp’s insistence on selling Wilson permanently, which is the wiser decision since the ace is only under contract for another two years, leaves the hopefuls of World Cup promotion Swansea and West Brom little chance of recruiting the attacker.

Despite the fact that Fulham are leading the interest in Wilson, Goal adds that they have yet to back this up with an official offer which could frustrate their fans as it could open the door to other clubs.
Wilson has a track record of being a valuable asset to any of the competing teams in the championship and he has continued to improve over the last season, becoming a better creator with his 12 assists.
The Reds Academy graduate, who only made two first-team appearances for the Anfield side last season in the Cup and when he appeared in the 16/17 season, definitely has a natural eye for goals.
Wilson is a skilled long-range shooter, which has made him a winger in recent years that opposing teams cannot leave in space, giving him the X-Factor that can make him a fan favorite.
The attacker’s versatility will certainly appeal to interested teams, Wilson mainly plays as a right winger, but can also play in the central attacking midfield or on the left.
