Liverpool coach talked about €20m-rated on loan forward future
Merseyside club youngster Harry Wilson joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan from the Reds this campaign. German tactician only allowed Wales international to join the Cherries on loan this campaign because he thinks the attacker has a future at Anfield.
Harry’s stay at Vitality Stadium is his fourth loan stint since signing a professional contract with the Reds in 2014. Under Brendan Rodgers, Wilson was loaned out to Crewe Alexandra but was recalled four months later once Jurgen Klopp took charge at Merseyside club.
After two years among the first-team and Under-23s set-up, the 22-year-old winger was named the captain of the development side. A six-month loan spell at Championship club, Hull City in 2018, showed the forward could mix it at senior level, with seven goals in 14 matches.
Last year’s displays at Derby County hammered home that perception as the 22-year-old winger scored 18 goals and provided six assists under Frank Lampard. It was believed Welsh attacker could become a squad player at his parent club this campaign but Harry was once again loaned out, this time to Bournemouth.
German manager sanctioned this move to see how Wilson handles regular Premier League action. A vital part of the deal, unlike some other loanees Reds, have around Europe, is that the Cherries have no option to buy. That decision was made because Jurgen Klopp believes the Welsh star has a future at Merseyside club.
Harry has impressed under Eddie Howe, scoring three goals in five top-flight matches so far. His first goal came with Aston Villa in the second game week of the campaign.
