Front wheel tips to the side?

Hi!
I am currently selling my old bike and am doing a checkup to see if everything is alright, so I compress the fork a few times and I notice a kind of clicking and the wheel tipping to the side. I took it out and loosened the nuts on the hub a bit since it was runny very rough anyways, now the clicking is gone but it is still tipping side to side. The wheel is a Ride Alpha 27,5 Wheel with a Ride Alpha 15x100 hub.

More than likely the bearings in the front wheel are shot and need to be replaced. And/or the axle is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Very late but figured out that the bearings were running completely dry and ate into the seat. Re-greased them and now it is gone and the wheel is running surprisingly well.
