Football Insider is claiming that Leeds are keeping close tabs on Liverpool’s Harry Wilson who is currently enjoying a terrific season on loan at Derby. But should the club continue to pursue their interest?
What’s the word?
According to Football Insider, Leeds are keeping a close eye on two Liverpool players in Ryan Kent and Wilson.
The latter has been exceptional for Derby this term, scoring 14 goals in all competitions so it’s not difficult to see why he’s attracting interest from one of the Championship’s top clubs.
The Welshman signed a new deal with Liverpool only last summer but according to the report, the attacking midfielder’s future at the Merseyside club is in doubt. It’s hardly surprising given the wealth of options Liverpool have at their disposal.
It’s unknown how much the 22-year-old would cost any potential suitors, but Transfermarkt currently rates him at £8m.
Sign of intent
If Leeds are serious about the type of club they want to become and emerge as a force in the Premier League again, then should they achieve promotion, the signing of Wilson would be a big sign of intent.
He’s shown his quality on an all too regular basis this season and we’re starting to see more talents like Wilson make the step up into the Premier League quickly.
Last summer we saw James Maddison, a similar player, make the leap from the Championship to Leicester. He’s been a sensational buy for the Foxes and Leeds can follow a similar trend bringing Wilson to Elland Road this summer.
He is the perfect attacking midfield player and his dead ball ability, like Maddison’s, is first class.
Their promotion, of course, isn’t yet sealed but if Leeds’ interest in the player were to materialise then they’d have a player capable of taking the top flight by storm.
