The 23-year-old has been consistently left out of Jurgen Klopp’s side over the years and has been sent on several loan spells to gain more first-team experience, having only made two appearances in the first-team, as per TransferMarkt.
Following a successful stint at Frank Lampard’s Derby County during the 2018/19 campaign, the Wales international moved to Bournemouth, who were relegated to the Championship on the final day of last season.
With the Reds having bought the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota this summer, Wilson found himself slipping further down the pecking order. This tempted Burnley into making a £12m bid for a permanent transfer, which was rejected by the Reds.
Should Harry Wilson be sold rather than loaned?
As a result, supporters were furious that their side was unable to cash in on the Welshman before Friday’s 5pm deadline passed, making their feelings clear on social media about what one fan called a ‘pointless’ deal.
Fans feel Wilson should have been sold
Absolutely embarrassing that we couldn’t sell him

Sick to death of seeing Harry Wilson go out on loan! He’s a good player, really want to see him get a chance with us and see what he can do
