Leeds United were linked to Harry Wilson during the last summer transfer window, but no move came to fruition. However, the latest update on his future suggests a move could be on the cards in a few months time.
The latest on Wilson
According to The Athletic’s James Pearce, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp won’t be looking to integrate Wilson into his plans next season and thus, he could be sold in order to raise funds for the Reds.
The report suggests that the only loanees Liverpool will reintegrate at the end of the season are Harvey Elliot and Takumi Minamino.
Should Leeds make a move for Wilson?
Leeds are making a playmaker their biggest priority in the next transfer window as it was the only type of player they were unable to sign this season. Meanwhile, one of their current attacking midfielders Pablo Hernandez is nearing the end of his career at the age of 35.
The Welshman is exactly the type of player Leeds want, and he has shown glimpses of his creative potential whilst on loan at Cardiff this season. He has picked up three goals and six assists so far, and managed two shots and 2.1 key passes a game (WhoScored).
Roy Keane heaped praise on Wilson late last year as he said: “I loved this goal [Wilson’s opener]. Bale gets a break of the ball, it’s the run from Wilson [from the edge of the box into the penalty area] brilliant, outstanding and lovely weight of pass.”
Wilson is still only 23 and clearly has the potential to succeed at the top level as he has already featured in the Premier League.
He just needs someone to get the best out of him. Marcelo Bielsa could be the ideal coach for him and it would benefit all parties. He would add some much-needed attacking squad depth and would get another chance to prove himself in the top-flight.
