Bournemouth in talks with Liverpool about loaning Harry Wilson
Aug 10 2019
However, the Reds are hoping to offload him for the season with Liverpool looking for guarantees that the talented Wilson will play.
Permanent moves to both those sides coming to nothing, it looks like a loan spell at the Cherries is on the cards, the player reportedly undergoing a medical.
The Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan after Eddie Howe identified the Wales global as an ideal replacement for David Brooks.
Wilson said he was excited to now get his chance in the Premier League.
The Reds believe the Wrexham-born wideman has the potential to play games for them this season, but appreciate his desire to feature regularly at Premier League level.
Wilson turned in several strong performances for Liverpool in the pre-season, making six appearances and scoring against Borussia Dortmund and Lyon.
With David Brooks sidelined for three weeks due to an ankle injury, Eddie Howe has only the likes of Junior Stanislas, Arnaut Danjuma and former Liverpool winger Jordon Ibe as backup options.
There is a feeling that if Wilson is to become a part of the Liverpool first-team next year, then he will have to shine bright for Bournemouth - just as he did for Derby County in the Championship last term.
Liverpool get their 2019-20 Premier League campaign underway with a home clash against Norwich City on August 9 before a Super Cup showdown with Chelsea in Turkey on August 14.
Meanwhile, Leeds United are hoping to secure a deal for Liverpool winger Ryan Kent (22) as a replacement for Anderlecht-bound Kemar Roofe.
However, sources close to the club are suggesting that such a move would be more about putting him in the shop window in the hope his valuation increases should his loan be hailed a success.
