Harry Wilson still remains an ambiguous topic of conversation among Liverpool supporters having recently returned from his loan period with AFC Bournemouth.

The Wales international has yet to feature since returning to the English champions having missed Liverpool’s pre-season camp in Austria entirely due to injury.

Wilson, 23, has also become the subject of interest of other Premier League teams with both Aston Villa and Wolves among those who would consider Wilson should Liverpool look to sell.

According to Sky Sports, Liverpool have ruled out the prospect of loaning out the talented winger for another season and will either look to sell for a respectable fee or keep him among the squad for the 2020/21 campaign.

Wilson is still yet to feature for Jurgen Klopp since 2017 during an FA Cup replay against Plymouth Argyle and he could be Liverpool’s best source of income this summer given his success with both Bournemouth and Derby County over the past two seasons.

At 23, time is against Wilson in terms of making a sustained impact in the team. Liverpool have a number of options already in his position including Xherdan Shaqiri and Harvey Elliott with the latter’s development likley to be prioritised over Wilson’s given the six-year age difference.

According to a recent report from The Mirror, Liverpool currently value Wilson at £20 million and the club would be forced to sell if such an offer was met.

It certainly is a prospect that some Liverpool supporters would entertain if it meant raising sufficient funds to invest in other areas of the team.

Klopp has remained firm on his transfer approach that Liverpool will not spend heavily on summer additions unless the money became available through potential outgoings.

Dejan Lovren was recently sold for £10.9 million to Zenit St Petersburg and the Croatian’s transfer fee effectively paid for the signing of Kostas Tsimikas.

If Liverpool were to sell Wilson it could open the door for another attacking addition at Anfield and that certainly is a situation a selection of fans would be open to.

Here are a number of responses on social media reacting to reports that Wilson could indeed be sold this summer.
