Bournemouth are said to be in talks with Liverpool over a loan for highly-rated forward Harry Wilson, according to reports in The Mirror.
The 22-year-old has been a key part of boss Jurgen Klopp’s pre-season campaign but his Anfield future remains up in the air.
The Cherries are eyeing-up a loan move for Wilson after David Brooks was ruled out for three months after picking up a pre-season injury.
Liverpool value Wilson at £25 million but it would appear the Cherries only want to do a loan deal at this stage.
Last season, he was mightily impressive for Derby County. He helped the Rams to the Championship Play-Off Final, scoring 15 goals in 40 league games.
Wilson is yet to make his first competitive start at Anfield. His only senior appearance to date came as a sub against Plymouth in an FA Cup game in 2017
This would certainly be a bold move by Bournemouth and Eddie Howe might be just the man to develop his career.
The boss has a proud history of giving youngsters the platform to play frequent first-team football and Wilson could thrive under his stewardship.
Liverpool could live to regret not keeping Wilson. After losing Daniel Sturridge in the summer, the Reds aren’t blessed with loads of forward options.
An injury to Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino or Mo Salah could make the decision to offload Wilson look foolish.
