Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson is thriving at Bournemouth this season.
The 22-year-old midfielder has been a stand out player for Eddie Howe’s side.
Currently he is the club’s top scorer with six goals in the Premier League.
The Reds owed the South East club after several selling them several flops in the past.
Jordon Ibe was the first to make the move from Anfield to Deans Court three years ago. The talented winger joined the Reds at 15 and was highly touted on Merseyside.
However, despite plenty of chances he failed to make the grade and it become clear he never would. In comes Bournemouth with a massive £15m offer, which we of course accepted. Ibe has yet to pay back the club scoring just three goals in 76 appearances since 2016. He now appears to be out of favour with Howe, making just two appearances so far this season.
Brad Smith quickly followed Ibe to the South Coast. The Australian played a handful of games for the Reds but never really looked like making his way into the first team. Liverpool fans were amazed to find out we had negotiated a £6m figure for his sale. Since joining the Cherries he has made just five appearances and appears to be a waste of money.
Dominic Solanke was the third and final big money transfer from Liverpool to Bournemouth. The Reds signed the England youth international for free when his contract with Chelsea expired. He came into the club and got a few games under his belt in fairness.
However, the striker looked bereft of confidence in front of goal and scored just once during his 18 month stint at the club. He left for a staggering £19m at the start of 2019 and has failed to live up to that price tag. He’s so far made 10 appearances for the club and is still waiting for his first goal. He is only 22-years-old and could well repay the club for their investment in the future.
The trend of Liverpool ripping Bournemouth off in the transfer market appears to have ended with Harry Wilson. It’s almost as if the Reds board have sent the Welshman as an apology for the previous three players we have sold too them.
Lucky for us Wilson won’t be able to play when Liverpool make the trip to Bournemouth this weekend.
