€20m-rated forward decided to leave Liverpool during this summer

While you can understand it if a club continually loans out a teenager in the hope that they eventually become a star or increase in value, there does come a point where enough is enough. So far he’s had loan spells with Crewe, Hull, Derby and Bournemouth and while he’s been great, he’s clearly not done enough to earn a proper opportunity at Liverpool.

The Merseyside giants forward Harry Wilson turned 23 earlier this year so he’s not really a teenager anymore, so the time has come for him to either break into the German manager’s club or establish himself somewhere else. It does sound like it’s time for him to move on.

They suggest that the German boss has insisted that he can’t go out on loan anymore, so if he goes then it will need to be a permanent transfer. Several PL teams have been linked with Wales international, including Aston Villa and Wolves, but they still need to bolster in other places first.

That does indicate that the Merseyside giants have given up any hopes of him developing enough to get into their side, but you could also argue that they are doing the best thing for Harry too.

It could really hurt his career if the Reds keeps him and only give him a few Carabao Cup matches in the next couple of years, so this will give him a chance to go and establish himself somewhere. Wilson’s also been in and out of the Wales team so this could even help his international aspirations.
