Brighton opinion: Seagulls should make a move for Harry Wilson
Brighton have had a torrid time over the last few months, with them going from a mid-table side to one fighting relegation. In the end, they managed to fight off the advances of the second-tier and survived to fight another day in the top-tier. However, they won’t be able to do that for long.
Sure, the club appointed Graham Potter and while the former Swansea City boss has inherited a good backline but everything else needs improvement. Their front-line is a combination of the ageing Glenn Murray and the wasteful Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
The club record signing has done nothing for the club and needs to be moved on. It’s why Graham Potter needs to make sure he adds the right players in the right areas over the course of the summer window.
But his first and top priority should be his front-line, otherwise, Brighton could see themselves fighting relegation again.
There is only so much a good backline can do when the front-line cannot score goals to save their lives. That should change and Potter has a history of doing exceptional things with a small budget.
That more than anything describes Brighton and the Seagulls need someone like the former Swansea boss to come in and freshen up their side.
Not only that, his attack-minded style of play should help the club but that has to be complemented by attacking minded players. One man who fits that bill is Harry Wilson. The Liverpool youngster would be a great move for Brighton.
The Brighton and Hove Albion Independenthas reported that the Seagulls are keen on a move. The 22-year-old had a great season with Derby County, finishing as the club’s top scorer with 15 goals.
However, his total for the entire season was just 2 goals short of 20, with Wilson also adding six assists.
It shows his change and maturity in an area that he once struggled in. This is why a move makes a lot of sense for Brighton, as his fearlessness out wide will help the club.
They’ve missed that this season and while the industrious Solly March has done well, Wilson will add a direct threat to the goal. The Liverpool starlet’s pace and creativity on the break will be a massive asset to the Seagulls next season.
The report doesn’t specify what kind of move it is, but either way, whether it’s a loan deal or a permanent move, it will help.
