Wireless is not an issue, unless by wireless you mean a lavalier?

Likewise, what they are standing in front of is not an issue, the acoustics of the room could be an issue. Or are you shooting outside?

I would use some kind of directional mic (shotgun, hypercardioid?) on a boom if I had someone to manage it for me in a quiet space. But if environment was more noisy, I would use a lav.
You are either growing or dying.
