Our view: Jurgen Klopp has a Harry Wilson conundrum that quickly needs resolving

Liverpool’s Premier League title parade may have temporarily been put on hold due to the outbreak and spread of Covid-19 but the time off from the pitch presents the club with a rare opportunity to plan ahead and look at their options for next season.

The Reds are currently 25 points clear at the league summit and are just two victories away from securing a first league title in 30 years.

So perhaps Liverpool may already be planning ahead for next season and what reinforcements will be required in order to remain competitive on all-fronts again next season.

One question that will come to pass in the summer window is whether Liverpool or not Harry Wilson will be in the club’s plans for next season?

The Daily Mail reported recently that Liverpool could be tempted to listen to offers for the Wales international for around £25m.

Wilson, 22, has enjoyed a stellar inaugural season in the English top-flight following a loan-spell with AFC Bournemouth with the Welshman scoring seven times for Eddie Howe’s team this campaign.


The Liverpool academy graduate recently admitted to BT Sport that he indeed has a big decision to make on his future should Wilson feel that his path into the Reds first-team were to be blocked.

Jurgen Klopp himself will need to answer whether he feels Wilson is ready to challenge Liverpool’s current attacking trio for a place in the team or whether the club’s best interest would be to cash in on a player that has endured three separate loan spells in two years.

With Liverpool certain to lose both Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah next season due to the duo’s participation in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations that will take place in January 2021 it could force the Reds to consider pursuing other attacking options or even looking closer to home for options that could help aid the gargantuan void in the pairs’ absence.

Also, according to The Mirror, Liverpool could be set to also part ways with Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri which could provide a pathway into the first team for Wilson should he chose to remain at Merseyside once his loan period with the Cherries comes to an end.
