Leeds United could make a summer move for Liverpool winger Harry Wilson, according to a report by Football Insider and we have identified THREE players who could thrive from the youngster’s arrival.
Having developed through the various youth sides at Anfield, Wilson has been away from the Merseyside club on four different loan spells, helping him gain experience and first team football.
Successful spells with Crewe Alexandra, Hull City, Derby County and Bournemouth have only enhanced his reputation with his spell at Pride Park a particular highlight, netting 18 goals and gaining six assists.
Having struggled to gain a consistent chance at parent club Liverpool, it is understood that the Welsh international will now be allowed to leave this summer on a permanent deal and countless clubs are expected to be interested.
Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa has been a big admirer of Wilson over the last few season, having missed out over the last two summers in his attempts to lure him to Elland Road – but this could prove to be the summer that the pair are united.
Wilson’s arrival would provide goals for sure, but which Leeds players would gain something from his arrival…
Portuguese winger Costa is currently on a loan spell at Elland Road from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but that move is expected to be turned into a permanent one this summer due to a clause in his loan agreement.
A regular under Bielsa, the 26-year-old has struggled to get near double things in the goals and assist charts, but that could all change if Wilson arrives.
Costa would undoubtedly feel slightly under threat by Wilson’s arrival, but if he continues to be in the starting eleven along with the Welshman – the pair could produce some magical moments for the Whites.
Whilst it is not sure whether Bielsa will opt to keep Bamford as his main striker or in fact sign someone new, you can expect whoever the lone striker is to have service a plenty when Wilson arrives.
The former Derby man is an excellent creator on the ball, perfect for any striker in any team, and that talent has probably emerged on Bielsa’s list of qualities when looking at the attacking midfielder.
The heir to the thrown. Spanish playmaker Hernandez will have one last swansong in the Premier League next season, but at the age of 35, you have to feel he is edging closer and closer to his final playing days.
A replacement or finding one will be hard to come by, but Wilson, arguably, could be just that.
