Liverpool open to selling winger Wilson for £30million
According to Football Insider (h/t Express), Liverpool are willing to sell winger Harry Wilson in the summer following the emergence of Curtis Jones this season.
The Welsh international has made a name for himself in England. He initially impressed on loan at Derby County and continues to do so this season at Bournemouth. Having won the Liverpool Academy player of the season in 2018, Wilson has progressed well up the ranks. Liverpool will expect a fee of about £30million for the player.
Wilson has been a standout performer for a struggling Cherries side this season. He has scored 7 goals in 22 appearances in his first season in the Premier League. (h/t Whoscored)
Having come up through the youth ranks, the winger has made just one senior appearance for Liverpool. He came on as a substitute for Philippe Coutinho in the FA Cup tie against Plymouth Argyle in 2017. Wilson is a dead-ball specialist who excels at taking freekicks. The Reds management holds the winger in high regard but the player could find it hard to break into the Reds first team.
It is hard to see Wilson replace any of the Reds’ famed front three. The signing of Takumi Minamino and the emergence of Curtis Jones will further add obstacles to the Welshman’s progress at Anfield.
