Liverpool will reportedly hold talks with winger Harry Wilson over a possible departure from the club on loan.
David Lynch of The Evening Standard reports that discussions will take place once the 23-year-old returns from international duty with Wales.
Liverpool to Allow Harry Wilson Loan Exit
Wilson Not Named in Champions League Squad
Wilson does not appear to be in Jurgen Klopp’s plans for his squad this season and was omitted from the Reds’ squad for the Champions League group stages.
This has reportedly alerted many clubs towards the player’s potential availability. The Evening Standard also claim that Burnley have made official contact with Liverpool regarding either a loan deal or a permanent transfer.
Previous loan moves away from Anfield have allowed Wilson to showcase his talents. The winger was part of the Derby County side that reached the Championship play-off final two seasons ago. Additionally, in 2019/20, he scored a respectable seven goals in 31 appearances as Bournemouth suffered relegation from the Premier League.
EFL Move a Possibility for Wilson
The prospect of a move to the Championship also appears possible for Wilson. The window for transfers to be made between Premier League and EFL clubs – either loan or permanent deals – does not slam shut until the 16 October deadline.
In addition to his stint at Derby, Wilson has also starred for Hull City on loan in the second tier. Any clubs seeking a permanent deal for the player will be put off by the Anfield club’s reported £20 million valuation of their out-of-favour wide player.
Wilson’s only appearance for the Reds since his debut in 2017 came in the Carabao Cup fourth round fixture at home to Arsenal. Having played the full 90 minutes, Wilson missed the decisive penalty as Mikel Arteta‘s Gunners triumphed in the shootout following a 0-0 draw.
Over the coming days, Wales’ next international fixtures will see them take on Republic of Ireland and Bulgaria away from home. Ryan Giggs‘ side were beaten 3-0 by England on Thursday.
