Harry Wilson enjoyed a fairly positive pre-season, with the Welshman putting in decent shifts against Borussia Dortmund and Lyon.
Renowned journalist, Dom King, of the Daily Mail, has reported that Bournemouth are after the young winger to replace the injured David Brooks.
The Reds do not want to sell Wilson, as per King, but they do want to know how often the 22-year-old will get time on the field – Jurgen Klopp clearly doesn’t want him to rot on the bench.
Bournemouth are in talks with Liverpool over a loan move for Harry Wilson. They want as David Brooks is out for 3 months. Liverpool not looking for a permanent deal but do want assurances Wilson would get game time. Talks continue 🔴

Klopp has suggested players like Wilson and Ryan Kent will not get another loan – they’re to accept a squad role at Anfield or move on to pastures new so they can settle somewhere, but that may have changed.
But Liverpool fans aren’t happy with this proposed idea as Wilson is around the make-or-break age – with some supporters either wanting him to stay and fight for his place or leave permanently.
Here’s what some fans have been saying:
Another loan is pointless. Brooks after 3 months comes back then what? Either give Wilson a chance or just sell him ffs

Just reducing our squad depth further

A premier league loan would be good for all the people that doubt his quality in the premier league, but with our lack of cover on the wings as it is, I’d happily keep him

If Liverpool sell Harry Wilson in this window I’d fully expect a replCement to be brought in straight away. We are short in wide positions and to leave us short is plain daft!

True, i still think he can come on late in games and give us solid minutes. Bournemouth is a good place to go though.

I’m not the biggest Harry Wilson fan, but either play him or sell him. Stop loaning a guy who wants to feel settled at a club, and start fresh without the ‘what if’ pressure on his shoulders. https://t.co/6X81IWvtN7
