Harry Wilson can help Leeds United push for play-offs next season

As reported by The Sun, Leeds United are one of the teams interested in signing Liverpool winger Harry Wilson this summer.

What’s the story?

Wilson his highly rated at the Reds, having a signed a new long-term deal at the club in January ahead of a successful loan move to Championship side Hull City in the second half of the 2017/18 season.

As a result, it appears teams are queuing up to offer him more first team football next season.

The Sun report that Leeds United, Rangers, Huddersfield and Aston Villa are all interested in securing a loan deal for him this summer.

The paper say Liverpool are looking for a £250,000 fee, plus penalties should he not get enough of the first-team opportunities they want.

Is he a player that Leeds should be moving for?

What does he offer?

Still just 21 years of age, Wilson doesn’t have extensive first team experience to draw too many conclusions from, but did demonstrate on loan at Hull City that he as quality that could be a benefit to Leeds.

He scored seven Championship goals from the left flank, also creating three assists. Also netting his first goal for the Welsh national team, it’s been a big year for the youngster.

It’s clear he has huge potential and already has the cutting edge to be a success in English second-tier, with Leeds badly needing more inspiration in the final third next season.

Loan deals are never ideal, permanent signings are what supporters want to see, but this is one that could be a big positive for all parties and something Leeds should definitely pursue.
