Harry Wilson has already justified potential first team role at Liverpool

With his fourth goal in three games, Harry Wilson is in unstoppable form for Derby County. The Liverpool winger is thriving whilst on loan in the Championship and having scored another brilliant goal, should be demanding a first team role at Anfield next season.

The attacking midfielder has been a regular for Frank Lampard, not missing a game since September, and is a key part of the former Chelsea man’s squad as they push for promotion.

Liverpool’s attack has been boosted by the arrival of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City this season but would be even further enhanced by the return of Wilson ahead of next season.

The Welsh international will return to Merseyside and it is hard to see why Jurgen Klopp would not be keen to involve the former Liverpool under 23s captain in his squad.

 

At 21-years-old, he has room to improve even further and comparisons have been drawn to James Maddison given how the two have performed in the Championship, for Maddison whilst with Norwich and now thriving at Leicester in the top flight.

Wilson can expect an opportunity in the squad at the very least after this loan spell if he can maintain his consistency throughout what’s left of the campaign.
