The ongoing financial ramifications following the pandemic have seen for a more cautious approach from Premier League clubs throughout the ongoing summer transfer window.

For Harry Wilson, this could finally give the Liverpool forward some clarity regarding his individual prospects next season.

The noises coming out of Liverpool are that under no circumstances will the club seek out a loan deal for the Wales international following three different loan move in recent years.

According to The Echo, Liverpool are not prepared to sanction another sabbatical for Wilson away from Anfield with the club insistent that if another team wants him they will have to pay for the luxury.

The Echo also report that Wilson’s asking price is set to be in the region of £20 million.

Newcastle, Leeds and Southampton have all reportedly contacted Liverpool regarding the availability of Wilson, who will either leave the club on a permanent basis or will remain part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad for next season.

Despite the 2020/21 campaign just over a week away, Liverpool feel under no obligation to depart with Wilson on the cheap and the 23-year-old could still play a role in the Reds’ title defence which is set to commence against Leeds United on September 12.

What RTK has to say

This is particularly encouraging news for Wilson who can finally begin the campaign in the knowledge that it will take a substantial sum of cash to block his wish of becoming a first team player for Liverpool next season.

 

Wilson has had to consistently approach the end of pre-season preparations with his short-term future very much unknown in previous years.

A sense of ambiguity andworrying about the future is  feeling the young Welshman has been forced to become accustomed to following separate loan spells with Hull City, Derby County and AFC Bournemouth respectivley.

Wilson participated in all seven of Liverpool’s pre-season fixtures last season yet found he was surplus to requirements once the competitive season finally came rolling around.

Once again, Wilson continues to look for his big breakthrough at the club he has been with since the age of eight.

Yet this time, the current economic climate works in the players favour and finally an opportunity with Wilson’s boyhood club could become a beaming reality.
