Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to run the rule over Harry Wilson in pre-season before making a decision on his future, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Wilson spent last season out on loan at Derby County and scored 18 goals across all competitions, impressing as the Rams narrowly missed out on promotion from the Championship with a 2-1 Wembley loss against Aston Villa in the play-off final.
And the report says that the Reds have had inquiries about the wideman from clubs wanting to buy him this summer but Klopp won’t make a decision until he has seen him up close during pre-season.
Only then will Klopp apparently make a decision about the winger’s future – and he will get enough time to prove himself in those summer matches.
This is the sensible approach from Klopp, in truth. Liverpool have a squad which is lacking in attacking depth and although it’s a major jump from the Championship to the Premier League, there’s no doubt Wilson has quality.
It makes sense that he’ll be given a chance to show that in front of Klopp, as opposed to the German selling him to the highest bidder.
Wilson should come back for pre-season energised and ready to prove to Klopp what he can do.
