Wilson & Liverpool
Harry Wilson is a product of Liverpool’s youth system.
The now 22-year-old hasn’t really been given the chance to shine for the Red’s first-team, making just one appearance.
However, Wilson has netted 30 and assisted 14 for Liverpool’s under-23 side.
The midfielder has also enjoyed loan spells at Crewe, Hull and most recently, Derby County.
Wilson spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Derby as they made it all the way to the Championship play-off final.
While Derby fell short in the final vs Aston Villa, Wilson had a superb 2018/19.
In 49 appearances across all competitions, Wilson found the back of the net 18 times and provided six assists for the Rams.

Wilson is naturally a right-winger but he is also capable of playing on the left or as a central attacking midfielder.
After such a noteworthy campaign with Derby, it should be no surprise to hear Wilson is reportedly attracting the attention of some Premier League sides.
Sky Sports News reported on July 26th that both Newcastle and Aston Villa were interested in signing Wilson.

However, Sky reporter Keith Dowie dampened the Magpie’s hopes of landing Wilson who is believed to have a £20m price-tag.
Newcastle are unlikely to sign Liverpool winger Harry Wilson because he isn’t available on loan. Steve Bruce keen on the player but Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to loan him again. We’re told he’s valued at £20m #NUFC

Now though, it looks as though a third club has entered the fold.
According to the Sun, Eddie Howe is ready to bid £25m for the Liverpool star.
