Liverpool transfer: Swansea eye loan deal for 'outstanding' Reds misfit
Liverpool misfit Harry Wilson has been targeted for another loan deal by Swansea City. The Sunday People (Print Edition; page 58) claims that Steve Cooper has earmarked the Wales international.
The Swans were beaten in the Play-Off Final by Brentford back in May. Cooper will hope to finally lead his men into the top-flight next season but wants some reinforcements.
It does seem highly unlikely that Liverpool will get their asking price for Wilson. He has just one season of Premier League football to his name, scoring seven goals for Bournemouth during 2019/20.
Cooper tried for Wilson last season, but he signed for fierce rivals Cardiff City. He enjoyed a solid campaign with the Bluebirds, scoring seven times and claiming 12 assists.
Now, he’s back in the sights of Championship clubs and perhaps they won’t be the only outfit interested.
What have fans said about Liverpool misfit Wilson?
In the past, he’s had some rave reviews. When he was scoring for fun for Derby during the 2018/19 campaign, one Liverpool fan compares his brilliance to Coutinho.
He does have the ability to ping one in the top corner from 30 yards and on his day he’s a real match-winner.
It’s never quite been enough to earn him a proper chance at Liverpool though. With that in mind perhaps moving on is the right thing to do.
Rangers first-team coach, Michael Beale is also a big fan. Last year he called Wilson ‘outstanding’ after one of his stunning strikes for Cardiff.
Liverpool should consider Wilson loan
The Reds seem unwilling to hand the creative spark a chance in their first team. As a result, it would make perfect sense for the club to let him out on loan.
Swansea boss Cooper has a great history with younger players, and perhaps he’s the ideal manager for Wilson.
The 24-year-old might be way down the pecking order at Liverpool but he is still a steady player.
It’s time for him to put some roots down and if he fires the Swans to promotion, a permanent deal could well be on the cards.
