This summer will see a number of incomings and outgoings at Anfield. With The Reds sure to be Premier League champions and potentially becoming back to back Champions League winners there will certainly be money to spend, the squad will need to be trimmed to accommodate any new arrivals. According to the Liverpool ECHO, Liverpool could make over £20m by selling Harry Wilson.
Wilson is a product of the Liverpool academy.
The Welsh winger moved on loan to Bournemouth at the start of the season and has been impressive despite Eddie Howe’s side’s disappointing campaign.
Having netted seven goals from the wing in the Premier League this season, including a memorable free kick against Manchester City, the wide man has boosted his reputation.
It is perhaps this boost to his credentials that motivated The Reds to loan him out in the first place.
With a place in the first team at Liverpool looking unlikely given the incredibly high standards being set and the lack of first team football he would be afforded, the club may have wanted to give him a season away to prove himself and in turn increase his market value.
What RTK has to say
Getting over £20m for Harry Wilson wouldn’t be bad business at all, particularly given that The Reds are likely to beef up the deal with sell on and buy back clauses.
Just where he ends up is anybody’s guess, Wilson could well stay with Bournemouth or he could be picked up elsewhere.
The Cherries have had a rough season and Wilson may hold out for a different club – the Welshman has been a shining light at times for the South Coast side yet they haven’t got the best out of him.
It would likely be in the player’s best interest to listen to other offers should he be allowed to leave.
