Leeds United interested in signing Harry Wilson: Should Liverpool sell?

Should Liverpool sell Harry Wilson to Leeds United?

The Welsh international spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Bournemouth, netting seven goals while providing two assists in 35 appearances across all competitions.

Unfortunately, he could not prevent the Cherries from being relegated to the Championship as they finished in 18th position, just a point behind 17th-placed Aston Villa.

Wilson returned to Liverpool following the completion of his loan spell at Bournemouth. Reports have stated that Leeds United are interested in signing the 23-year-old and are willing to pay £15 million for him.

The club’s manager, Marcelo Bielsa, wants to rope in Wilson ahead of their first game in the Premier League since 2003/04. This report also claims that Aston Villa and Newcastle United’s managers have an interest in the Welshman as well.

Wilson has been a part of Liverpool since 2005 but has made only one appearance for the senior team in an FA Cup fixture against Plymouth Argyle in 2017.

He spent the last three seasons on loan at Bournemouth, Derby County and Hull City. Wilson’s stint at Derby was impressive as he amassed 18 goals and six assists in 50 appearances under Frank Lampard.

So, should Liverpool let go of Wilson? Provided they let go of him for a price around £15-20 million, it could be useful for them as that amount might be useful for them to sign someone like a Thiago, who has been linked lately.

However, if Liverpool keep him at Anfield for this season, that could do them well too. The Reds need a backup for Mohamed Salah and while they have Xherdan Shaqiri, the Swiss international has had his fair share of injuries last season.

Wilson could be someone they could often use and given that he has had Premier League experience, Klopp might give him a good amount of game time.

For me, the most likely scenario seems that Harry Wilson will be sent on loan to Leeds United but won’t be surprised if the Welsh international stays at Liverpool.
