Long-awaited Liverpool transfer crosses line after Klopp finally gives in – Marseille news


A move to Liverpool that has been touted over several summers has finally been made, although the deal is less than what the Reds initially hoped for.

For several seasons, Liverpool have been strongly linked to the sanction of the final departure of the Welsh winger Harry wilson. The 24-year-old has spent time on loan in five of the past six seasons and has impressed in his stints with Derby, Bournemouth and Cardiff.

This led the club to place a £ 20million valuation on his head, although a suitor could not be found at the price.

Now Liverpool and Klopp have finally relented after Fulham confirmed the double signing of Wilson and former Tottenham goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

Wilson has signed a five-year deal with the Cottagers after completing the formalities of his £ 12million transfer.

Argentina goalkeeper Gazzaniga signed a two-year contract after leaving Spurs as a free agent at the end of last season.

The signings are the club’s first since relegation from the Premier League last season and the appointment of Marco Silva as manager.

Wilson has only made two senior appearances for Liverpool after going through their youth system, but has gained considerable experience from a series of loans.

He had spells in Crewe, Hull, Derby, Bournemouth and most recently Cardiff last season. On top of that, he has 29 caps in Wales and has made three substitute appearances at Euro 2020 this summer.

Wilson was also linked with Benfica and Liverpool reportedly turned down an offer for him from Burnley last year.

Wilson’s first order of business with Fulham will be helping them return to the Premier League.

He told FFCtv: “I am delighted to sign for Fulham. I liked the club’s ambition to return to the Premier League because that’s where we all want to be.

Fulham are Gazzaniga’s fourth English club after playing for Gillingham, Southampton and Spurs.

The 29-year-old, who was loaned out to Elche last season, said: “Fulham is a great club. I like the challenge and I think it’s a great opportunity for me.
