According to the latest reports from Leeds Live, Leeds United are still interested in signing Liverpool’s winger Harry Wilson. The Welshman has been linked with the Whites on numerous occasions in the past few months. However, his stock has risen, and various Premier League clubs like Newcastle United and Southampton are also said to be interested. Recently reports emerged that the Reds are willing to cash in on him if their valuation of £25m for the player is met.

Wilson finished the season for Derby County with 18 goals in all competitions as the Rams fell short at the final hurdle in their bid to move to the Premier League. Given Wilson’s performance in the past one and a half season in the Championship, there is no doubt that he is likely to play in the Premier League in the upcoming season.

Update from Wilson

Wilson is still unclear about his future as he recently said, ”There is a loan guy called Jools [Julian Ward]. I am in touch with him, and he reports back to the manager. I have had a few texts off [Jürgen Klopp]. “It’s good to know you are not being forgotten. I wanted to come to a good football team, so I could showcase what I could do. 

“Hopefully, the manager has seen the games on TV, and I’ve made a good impression. I’ll go back there, pre-season. What happens from there I don’t know.”

The report from Leeds Live does add that the Yorkshire outfit are an unlikely destination for him after the club failed to move to the Premier League. But the Welshman is still being linked with a move to Elland Road. Wolverhampton Wanderers are also said to be interested in the 22-year-old.

Why can Bielsa do with someone like Wilson?

Bielsa needs to add players in the wide regions, and Wilson would be a massive signing for the club. The Liverpool man was Derby’s highest scorer for the season, and that showed his potential in the final third. Leeds United had failed to finish off moves and provide final touches after good build-up play, and someone like Wilson will be a significant upgrade for them.

Time for the club to look somewhere else

However, we don’t see the Whites meeting Liverpool’s valuation of £25m. Also, we cannot see the Merseyside club sending him again on a loan spell to the Championship after interests from Premier League clubs. Therefore the Whites should look at other plausible options as Wilson is definitely out of bounds for them.
