Wilson made just his second senior appearance for Liverpool in the League Cup Round of 16 against Arsenal before joining Cardiff City on loan – it is Wilson’s fifth temporary spell away from Anfield.
He spent the 2019/20 campaign at Bournemouth after previous stints at Derby County, Hull City and Crewe Alexandra.
A hat-trick in a 4-0 win at Birmingham City last weekend took Wilson to seven Championship goals for the season, alongside his 12 assists (via Transfermarkt).
O’Neill expects Wilson to prepare for the 2021/22 season with Liverpool before making a permanent exit.
The Reds demanded £15million for Wilson last summer and, as it stands, that price-tag hasn’t changed.
Burnley were rebuffed in their £12million approach for the Wales international and it’s understood that they won’t revive their interest. He has two years left on his contract.
Liverpool couldn’t have asked for much more from Wilson while out on loan.
He would be a good squad player for the Reds, deployed predominantly in cup competitions.
But Wilson is good enough to be playing consistent Premier League football, albeit in the bottom half of the division, so it could be a win win for all parties for the Reds to finally cash in this summer.
