Report: Celtic want to sign Liverpool star on loan
The Scottish Sun have claimed that Celtic are exploring the possibility of luring Harry Wilson to Parkhead from Premier League champions Liverpool this summer – though the Reds could prefer to sell the Wales international permanently.
Wilson, 23, is surplus to requirements at Liverpool despite playing just his second senior match for the Reds during the penalty-shootout Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal last week. He has made his name while on loan at Hull, Derby and Bournemouth.
The Welsh ace scored 18 goals under Frank Lampard at Derby during 2018-19, before netting seven Premier League goals for Bournemouth last term. Goal claim Liverpool want to sell Wilson permanently, and seven Premier League clubs are keen.
Leicester, Leeds, Fulham, Newcastle, Southampton, Burnley and Aston Villa have all shown interest this summer – with Burnley tabling a £12million offer. But no move has been engineered for Wilson, and Celtic are now pursuing a potential loan.
TBR’s view – Celtic will secure 10 in a row, if they land Wilson
Wilson would be a simply stunning signing for Celtic. He would offer the Hoops some much-needed cover out wide, while also providing enormous creativity from the middle of the park – and superb ability from set pieces.
The Hoops would take a giant leap towards 10 in a row if they land Wilson. The chances of Liverpool sanctioning a move for Wilson on loan is unlikely, but also because it would hampt Reds legend Steven Gerrard’s chances of winning the title.
