Liverpool to reward Harry Wilson with new contract

Harry Wilson is set to be rewarded with a new long-term contract and the young forward is keen to push on at Liverpool.

Last season, the 21-year-old went on loan for six months at Hull City and scored 7 goals in just 13 appearances for the Tigers.

The spell in the Championship did wonders for his brand and has seen over a dozen sides express their interest in taking him on loan for the 2018/19 season but he has no desire to leave.

Wilson was superb in his 45-minute spell against Chester on Saturday, scoring two goals for the side that Jürgen Klopp put out for the first half of the friendly.

The former U23s captain has been given the freedom of the pre-season fixtures to show Klopp what he’s capable of and he couldn’t have asked for a much better start.

On top of that, Liverpool are looking to renew his terms after impressing hugely since the start of the calendar year. This news comes from the Liverpool Echo’s James Pearce.

“The dream of mine is to play regularly for Liverpool’s first team,” Wilson said.

“At the moment I am getting the chance to train at Melwood and get minutes in the friendlies and my aim is to impress the manager and stay here. If that’s not possible then we will weigh up the options and go from there.

“If you are in his training squad then he’s given you the chance to impress him. I have to make sure I use that chance. Over the coming weeks I am sure we’ll sit down and see what the plans are.

“I am concentrating on doing well every day in training and hoping that first team opportunities will come.”

Wilson was named Liverpool’s Academy Player of the Season for 2017/18 and it’s clear that he’s highly thought of by the club. I really hope he kicks on and makes the most of the chances afforded to him.
