Harry Wilson has offered the biggest hint yet that he might be making a move away from Liverpool this summer.
Having scored 18 times for Derby County this season under the guidance of Frank Lampard, lots of Premier League sides are interested in acquiring him, while the Midlands team would also like to keep hold of him if possible.
Via Derbyshire Live, Wilson said: “Obviously, every player wants to play at the top level – and the Premier League is the best league in the world. If I could do that with Derby, it would be great, and we’ve got a great opportunity to do that.
“Like I said, in the summer is when I’ll sit down and discuss my options. For now, I’m just doing all I can to make sure that I do have that option – of playing in the Premier League with Derby come next season.”
Of course, while he is still at Derby, Wilson is always going to say something along those lines, but the fact that he is seemingly open to a Premier League switch hints that he might be on the move this summer. The Reds are looking for at least £25 million for him.
Even if Derby do come up to the top division, it would suit Wilson better to move somewhere else. The likes of Leicester City and Wolves, who are both interested in signing the winger, are much more likely to be able to play to his strengths in terms of attacking and playing free-flowing football, safe in the knowledge they are unlikely to get relegated.
If Wilson does end up making a move away, the Reds should definitely be inserting a buy-back clause into his contract. There’s certainly a top player in there, although Anfield might not be the place he’s able to unlock that ability with Mo Salah to compete with for a place on the pitch.
