Brendan Rodgers is also well caught up on Wilson’s talents after his time as Liverpool manager which ended in 2015 when Jürgen Klopp was appointed.

 

On the other hand, Wolves are looking to put together a side that can achieve Premier League promotion and have identified Wilson as a player who can aid them in this objective.

Liverpool could be open to loaning Wilson to Wolves given their recent experience with the Championship club. Sheyi Ojo, who has struggled with injury this season, spent time on loan with Wolves before Klopp recalled him.

According to ESPN’s report, however,  Liverpool would rather not part ways with Wilson as they are confident that the forward can break into the first team squad in the coming years. Klopp’s philosophy has always been to keep his most promising stars close to his team.

As shown by the extensive run in the first team of Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander Arnold this season, Klopp is a manager who appreciates youth players and is unafraid to give them a run in the side if they are ready for it.

As far as Harry Wilson is concerned, he may well receive a call-up next season. Liverpool are certain to play in Europe next season, Europa or Champions League is not confirmed, but it could lead to Wilson and other Academy hopefuls to getting chances in the EFL and FA Cup.
