Leeds United are hoping to go again next season as they seek to overcome their play-off final disappointment.
The Whites have had good news with the news that Marcelo Bielsa will stay put, and there is bound to be a plethora of players linked with the club this summer who can improve the squad.
One man who has been linked with the club this weekend is Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson, who was superb for Derby County last season as Frank Lampard’s men made it to Wembley.
However, with the news report also stating that Liverpool could be set to cash in on Wilson is someone is willing to pay their £21m asking price, we here in the Tavern feel that Leeds need to be doing all they can to try and convince Liverpool to send him to Elland Road next term.
Leeds and Bielsa are desperate to win promotion, and after seeing what Wilson did to them over two legs in the play-offs, all the evidence is there to suggest the 22-year-old would slot right into the squad at Elland Road while suiting Bielsa’s style of play.
Wilson is a player capable of playing in both wide positions if needed, and his 16 goals last season give Leeds something they missed, especially when the likes of Kemar Roofe were out injured, as Patrick Bamford struggled to replicate the goalscoring form Roofe had delivered earlier in the campaign.
While Liverpool could be tempted to cash in, they might well be best suited letting Wilson spend time with a club the size of Leeds and under the guidance of such a world renowned manager like Bielsa.
Jack Harrison has seen his loan spell with the club end, while Pablo Hernandez cannot simply keep going at the level he is at forever. This represents the perfect opportunity for Wilson to move into Leeds XI and make a massive impression.
