Liverpool’s summer will either be a happy one or a time of reflection depending on the result of the Champions League final in a week’s time.
The Reds have the chance to put their Premier League heartache behind them with a win over Spurs, and manager Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to land that first trophy as manager of the Anfield giants.
Klopp will be fully focused on that final, but he will also no doubt have one eye on the summer transfer window and what awaits in terms of both sales and incoming signings, with the futures of some of his younger players up in the air ahead of next season.
One of those players is young winger Harry Wilson, who has thrived on loan in the Championship with Derby County and is now reportedly a transfer target for the likes of Southampton and Brighton, albeit at a massive fee of around £25m.
However, Wilson himself is going to face a massive decision of his own, with the chance of playing for Liverpool regularly likely to be something which isn’t on offer next season under Klopp and his coaching team.
The 21-year-old has smashed in 16 goals for the Rams this season in a superb campaign, delivering in big moments too such as the play-off semi-final against Leeds, demonstrating his ability to perform under pressure.
In any other team in the top flight, Wilson would no doubt be given his chance, but such is the quality on display for Liverpool and the attacking options at their disposal, Wilson might just miss out.
All the interested clubs represent solid outfits for Wilson to consider, and it’s a massive decision for the youngster to make as he looks towards the next stage of what is undoubtedly going to be a top career.
