Liverpool Echo journalist Paul Gorst has revealed that Harry Wilson may have played his last game for the club, as Liverpool look set to finally cash in on the academy graduate this summer.
Wilson has been on the books at Liverpool since 2005 when he joined the club’s youth academy. However, opportunities have been limited for him at Anfield and he has had to seek loan moves elsewhere in order to play first-team football regularly.
He looked set to finally leave Anfield last summer when Burnley expressed interest late in the summer window, but the two clubs were unable to agree on a fee. In the end, Wilson settled for a season-long loan at Cardiff in the Championship.
Speaking to the Kop End Fracas YouTube channel Gorst had this to say on the potential of Wilson being sold this summer:
“I don’t think Liverpool are going to be looking to be selling anyone on the cheap. I think they’ll drive a hard bargain as they usually do. But I think if they can find the buyer for Wilson, he’s another one who might have played his last game for Liverpool.”
TIF Thoughts on Harry Wilson leaving potentially Liverpool…
Wilson, who has two years left on his deal at Anfield, could have plenty of suitors lined up for his signature if he is allowed to move on this summer, having proved himself on numerous occasions in the Championship with loans at Hull City, Derby County, and Cardiff City. Wilson is also a full Wales international with 26 caps for his country, and reportedly has the likes of Leeds United, Burnley and Rangers interested in his services.
It seems like this summer could be the perfect time for him to move on from Liverpool as he should look to find a club he can settle in at and develop properly, as opposed to continually doing loan moves each season. At the age of 24, he is entering an important stage of his career, which will give him even more reason to want to settle down permanently.
