According to the Daily Mail, Bournemouth are currently negotiating with Liverpool, in an attempt secure the services of Harry Wilson on loan. The Cherries are keen to bring in the Welsh winger as cover for his injured compatriot, David Brooks.
Opportunities are likely to be limited for Wilson if he stays at Liverpool this season. Therefore, leaving Anfield on loan once again makes sense. He may well have a future with the Reds, but he doesn’t appear to feature in Jurgen Klopp’s plans at present.
In order to continue his development, it is vital that the 22-year-old gets regular first team football. He demonstrated last season what he is capable of when given this chance. Wilson spent the campaign on loan with Derby County in the Championship. He played a key role for the Rams as they reached the play-off final. Over the course of the season, Wilson registered 18 goals and six assists.
Bournemouth now seem prepared to offer the 11-cap Wales international an opportunity to prove his worth in the top flight. The Vitality Stadium would be the perfect destination for Wilson. Eddie Howe is not afraid to put his faith in young players, and his team play progressive, attacking football. The technically-gifted Wilson would thrive in this side. The prospect of Wilson linking up with the likes of Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Brooks is tantalising.
Wilson making a loan move to the south coast club makes sense for all involved.
