The Liverpool Echo reports that Harry Wilson will not be sold this summer after the Welshman impressed while on loan with Derby County.
The Academy graduate scored 21 goals and created four more while on loan, impressing a lot of Liverpool fans in the process.
There has been a lot of debate on social media throughout the course of the season as Reds supporters argued over whether or not the 22-year-old has done enough to be included in Jurgen Klopp’s side for next season.
As Simon Peach reported last week, Adam Lallana will be a part of the squad for next season and if so, it would be harsh for Wilson to be excluded after how he has performed over the last 12 months.
Lallana has contributed very little at Anfield over the last two years, starting just nine times and if he was given another chance at the age of 31, it would be an indictment on Liverpool’s loan policy.
Wilson performed as well as could have possibly been expected to and will be a brilliant squad option next season if the Echo is to be believed.
The Welshman is a natural right winger but his close control, turn of pace and finishing ability mean that Jurgen Klopp will be able to experiment with him as an attacking midfielder if necessary.
Wilson succeeding at Anfield is surely the ambition of all Liverpool coaches as it would mean that Trent Alexander-Arnold isn’t the only youth talent to come through the ranks and make a difference for the club.
