According to reports from Football Insider, Harry Wilson could well be on his way out of Liverpool this summer, with the door open for clubs like Leeds United to spark up their interest in the 23-year-old once more.
Leeds have previously looked to sign Wilson on loan from Liverpool in the last two summer transfer windows, but Derby County and AFC Bournemouth got in ahead of the Whites.
However, Football Insider now report that Wilson could be on his way out of Anfield at a fair price given the state the transfer market is expected to be in over the summer, which could well alert Leeds to another swoop for the winger, who has seven goals to his name this season on loan at Bournemouth.

There’s no denying that Wilson working under a manger like Marcelo Bielsa would be an intriguing watch and there’s definitely place to suggest the deal would be a good one.
With that in mind, we explore THREE reasons why Wilson to Leeds makes perfect sense…
Bielsa has worked wonders with the squad at Elland Road and turned a mid-table squad into an outfit looking Premier League-ready.
He’s turned players drifting along into machine-like characters and that sort of development would really benefit Wilson.
Wilson is a great little player, but with some time to work under Bielsa, you could see him going right to the top.
Matching Wilson’s ambition
Wilson has been with Liverpool for a good spell of time and will, of course, have had ambitions of properly cracking the first-team squad at Anfield.
If that doesn’t look like happening, the 23-year-old’s next move will have to be an ambitious one.
Leeds are an ambitious club under Andrea Radrizzani with a top-level head-coach in Bielsa.
You feel they could match Wilson’s ambition.
The player would be valued at Elland Road
Given Leeds have wanted Wilson in the last two summers, you can tell he has a lot of admirers at Elland Road.
Couple that with him been part of the Derby squad that sent Leeds crashing out of the play-offs last season, and you sense he’s got admirers on the terrace at Elland Road too.
That sort of environment will appeal to the player.
