Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has moved to Championship club Derby County on a season-long loan deal.

Wilson, 21, recently signed a new long-term contract at Anfield but he has been shipped out again by Jurgen Klopp to continue his development elsewhere.

The Welshman spent the second half of last campaign on loan at Hull City, where he scored seven goals and supplied four assists in just 14 appearances. Wilson is highly-rated at Anfield and is tipped for a bright future; however, Klopp is aware of the player’s talent and is refusing to sell. Instead, a one-year loan deal seems to be ideal.

The Liverpool ECHO had claimed that the 21-year-old attacker was wanted by as many as 12 Championship clubs, including Swansea City, Norwich City and Stoke City. But Frank Lampard’s Derby have successfully beaten them all to secure a deal.

Wilson scored twice in the 7-0 friendly win at Chester City but was left out of last weekend’s goalless draw at Bury by Klopp.

Considering the competition for places in Liverpool’s first-team, allowing Wilson to leave on loan again is the perfect move. Under Lampard, who prepares for his first season in management, the young winger can showcase his talent at Pride Park and help the club in their bid for promotion next season.

The report claims that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to overhaul his team after a tough season.

Betis are willing to sell the talented youngster if his £45million release clause is met, and Liverpool are also interested in the defender (h/t Mirror).

The report adds that United and Liverpool are not concerned with the release clause of the 22-year-old, and Jurgen Klopp sees him as a decent addition to the team.

The Reds need to sign some cover and competition for Andy Robertson in the summer window. Alberto Moreno left the Reds on a free, and we would only have Joe Gomez and James Milner who can replace the Robertson as our the left-back.

Firpo could provide cover for another position too

The report adds that the Spanish star can play as a left-winger or as a central defender, which would provide the Reds with enough cover should Dejan Lovren leave next season.

Liverpool did have problems with the centre-back spot last season as Fabinho had to be shoehorned into the role in a few games.
