Leeds United would be interested in a loan swoop for Liverpool’s Harry Wilson, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.
The tricky winger is being courted by a number of other clubs, but it seems he’s on Leeds’ radar.
With Marcelo Bielsa set to take the top job at Elland Road, could Wilson be his first signing? Is he the type of player Leeds need?
Wilson was a joy to watch for Hull last season as he formed a key part of an exciting attacking set-up.
This would be a great move for Leeds because they are limited in the amount of wide options they have, although Wilson acts more as an inside forward than a traditional winger.
However, it’s dependent on whether Liverpool are willing to loan him out to a Championship club again.
If Leeds could beat Premier League teams to Wilson, then they would have one of the most exciting and dangerous wingers in the divison at their disposal.
His goal scoring record for Hull spoke for itself and he would add a potent threat from the wings at Elland Road.
In Marcelo Bielsa’s 3-3-3-1 formation, the Wales youngster could occupy either of his inverted winger positions, cutting inside and offering goals and assists in abundance.
Wilson would be a good addition at Elland Road, if Leeds make a move for the winger.
It is exactly the type of loan deal Leeds should be looking to complete, as the Whites have been reluctant in recent years to look to the Premier League’s big clubs for talent.
The 21-year-old impressed at Hull earlier in 2018 and Elland Road could be the perfect platform for his development.
This guy’s a real talent.
He helped save Hull last season and is more than good enough to be playing at the sharp end of the Championship table.
He’d inject pace and fearlessness into Leeds’ side – something they need more of – and I’d expect their fans to really take to him.
He’d be an amazing first signing for Bielsa.
The winger showed his class with Hull last season and has the potential to be a star in the Championship.
He has pace, scores goals and would give them real quality from out wide.
