Leeds United have registered an interest in signing Liverpool’s Harry Wilson this summer transfer window, according to the latest reports.
Wilson spent last campaign on loan with Bournemouth but was unable to help keep the Cherries in the English top-flight, despite scoring seven goals in 31 matches for the south coast club.
The 23-year-old star will be expected to rejoin the Liverpool roster for the start of pre-season training in a few weeks’ time but it is looking like he could be on the move again.
After impressing in the EFL Championship on loan at both Hull City and Derby County, Harry made the step up to the top-flight and didn’t look out of place.
Whilst Bournemouth are unlikely to be able to retain the services of the Welsh international, it looks like Leeds could be keen on taking him.
At this point in his career, it is hard to see how another loan move could really benefit Harry or indeed Liverpool.
If Jurgen Klopp does not think Wilson has a future at Liverpool then now is probably the time to let the player go on a permanent basis.
Of course, the Reds will need to find a willing buyer, whether that’s the Whites or another club, and that may not be easy considering the impact that the pandemic has had on the finances of football teams across the world.
Elsewhere, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp wants to retain a lean roster to ensure they remain competitive next season.
“The solution cannot be to have a much bigger squad for the specific moment and then realise you cannot use all the players,” said the German.
“We cannot keep someone in the backyard and bring them up in the decisive moment. That will not help.
“We will have solutions for that, we have young players. The size of the squad is not that important to me, the quality of the squad is very much so.”
