Hull City are interested in securing the services of Liverpool winger Harry Wilson on a loan deal this summer. According to recent reports, the Tigers are looking to bring the Reds youngster back to the KCOM Stadium after his successful stint in the second half of last season.
The 21-year-old had put in a number of impressive performances for the Tigers during the course of last season which ended up helping the club avoid relegation to League One. Some sources are now claiming that Hull boss Nigel Adkins is eager to recruit him once again this summer in order to strengthen his squad ahead of the new campaign.
However, it is believed that the East Yorkshire club will face stiff competition from Rangers, Aston Villa and Leeds United in pursuit of the Welsh wonderkid’s signature during this summer transfer period. It will be especially tough for Hull City to get this one done as reports emerged a couple of days ago that Steven Gerrard personally wants to get the Wilson deal done for Rangers.
The 21-year-old wide man had found the back of the net 7 times while creating 4 assists in 13 appearances in the Skybet Championship last term. Wilson has massive potential to be a future star in English football and the Merseyside outfit should do all they can to retain his services for the long-run.
The Reds are currently preparing for their clash against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s side are in with a chance to secure their 6th European trophy with a victory this weekend. However, the German boss would know that he needs to retain some of his top young talents in order to build for a bigger and better future.
Wilson is exactly the kind of player who can break into Klopp’s first-team picture in the coming years. He has been impressive for the Reds youth sides and has done well during his loan stay at the KCOM Stadium last season. It’s high time that he got an opportunity under the German manager and the upcoming pre-season could be key in his attempts to impress Klopp.
His performance in the coming months could shape up his Liverpool future as a whole host of clubs including the Tigers line up to prise him away from Anfield. Wilson is quite versatile and can play in a number of different positions across the midfield. He primarily operates on the right flank but can also feature on the left or down the middle which makes him an ideal asset for Liverpool. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Wilson and whether he ends up staying at Merseyside next season.
