Michael Brown is “sure” that there will be plenty of offers for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson before Monday’s transfer deadline.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds and Manchester City midfielder delivered his verdict as Wilson’s potential move to Burnley broke down.
Wilson, who spent last season on loan at AFC Bournemouth, has also attracted interest from Premier League sides Newcastle United, Leeds United and Southampton.
However, it remains to be seen whether any of them will make a firm offer before the transfer window closes on Monday.
Asked by Football Insider whether he can see Wilson leaving Merseyside before Monday’s 11pm deadline, Brown said: “I just think it wouldn’t be the worst thing for Wilson to sit and wait a little bit.
“He had a good year (at Bournemouth) can he learn from those players? Can he force his way onto the bench?
“It’ll be tough.
“There’s lots to see from him going forward in the future but there’ll be a few late bids in for him, I’m sure.”
Wilson is yet to make a Premier League matchday squad for Liverpool but did play the full 90 minutes in their Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal last week.
He played 31 top-flight games for the Cherries last season, scoring seven times but his efforts were not enough to prevent their relegation.
The Wrexham-born man has also enjoyed loan spells at Crewe Alexandra, Hull City and Derby County.
