Signing Wilson should be Bielsa’s priority if he wants to survive next season

Signing Wilson should be Bielsa’s priority if he wants to survive next season

Liverpool prodigy Harry Wilson has been an absolute revelation at Derby County this season and could well be pulling the strings at possible future Premier League side Leeds United, if rumours are correct.

A huge win against West Bromwich Albion on Friday night marked Leeds United’s resurgence back into the automatic promotion spots after a pretty poor run of form saw them temporarily drop out of the reckoning.

Now, with only a limited amount of games left in the current campaign, and top-level football very much a possibility, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa will surely be preparing bids for the quality necessary to succeed in the Premier League.

But who?

According to reports from The Sun via HITC), one of the talents Bielsa is incredibly keen on bringing to West Yorkshire is current Wales international Harry Wilson.

Wilson, 21, who is currently on loan under former midfield maestro Frank Lampard, has clearly benefited from the experience of his manager’s illustrious career and has made a name for himself as a goal scoring, creative midfielder with wicked set-piece ability.

However, Derby’s season looks all but over now, and despite the player’s performances at the club, we doubt there is much chance of another loan deal being signed as Klopp looks to offer the player’s services elsewhere for top-flight experience.

Leeds would be the perfect destination.

Not only will he be trained under of the best coaches in world football, who a lot of players and coaches owe their careers to, but there is also the added bonus of consistently playing in the Premier League.
