Liverpool set for transfer deadline day business with Jurgen Klopp keen to offload winger
Liverpool are set to offload unwanted winger Harry Wilson today, with Cardiff City leading the way to sign the Welshman. The Daily Mail claims Wilson is set for an exit on deadline day.
Wilson is set to sign for Cardiff City before tonight’s domestic transfer window deadline.
The Welsh winger has been tipped to leave Anfield this summer throughout the window, but Liverpool’s demands for a £3million loan fee had proved to be too much for any interested teams.
Swansea were interested, as were Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Bristol City, though it seems Cardiff are set to win the race.
The two clubs have agreed terms over a one-year loan deal, with the winger set to put pen to paper today.

Wilson has been unable to work his way back into the Liverpool squad this season.
The winger has spent the last two years out on loan, and has looked impressive in both campaigns.
First, he played under Frank Lampard at Derby, helping them reach the Championship Play-Off final.
He scored 15 goals and provided nine assists in his 40 league appearances for the Rams, but was shipped out again after the season ended.

Wilson signed for Bournemouth in the Premier League last summer, and had a brilliant start to life at Dean Court.
He scored six league goals before the turn of the year, but found the net just once afterwards.
And former Manchester City defender Danny Mills believes he needs to go back down to the second tier to prove he is good enough for the Premier League.
He told Football Insider: “It would be a big coup for a Championship club to sign him but nobody is too good for any level.

“Wilson has not really proven it in the Premier League as of yet.
“You cannot say that he is too good for the Championship right now.
“It is like saying a team is too good to go down, there is no such thing sadly. If you get relegated you deserve to.
“If you are not good enough to get a Premier League club then the Championship is your level.”
