Liverpool winger Harry Wilson has made an excellent start to life in the Championship with Cardiff City after joining on loan in the summer, and the Merseyside club should consider cashing in on the Welsh international whilst his stock is high.
After a fairly impressive loan spell with Bournemouth in the Premier League last season, in which he managed to contribute seven goals in 31 appearances for the Cherries, you wondered whether the 23-year-old would be given an opportunity in Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The winger looks to have picked up where he left off in the Championship, having scored a superb 16 goals for Derby County during the 2018/19 season, as he has two goals for Neil Harris’ side in his first seven appearances in the second division (per WhoScored).
This has resulted in an impressive average rating of 7.04, rating him as Cardiff’s joint-third best player across the season so far.
He earned the praise of Harris following his performance in Cardiff’s recent 1-1 draw with Bournemouth, with the manager saying:
“Harry showed his class and quality and you can talk about his free-kicks and creativity, but it’s what he does without the ball as well which is important. I thought he was excellent.” (per FourFourTwo)
The Liverpool academy graduate is also a regular for his international side, having earned 17 caps for Ryan Giggs’ side, in which he has grabbed three goals (per Transfermarkt).
Therefore, you would imagine that should Liverpool be keen to sell the winger in January or next summer, they could get a decent fee for him, as he is currently valued at £14.4 million by Transfermarkt.
If his excellent form with Cardiff continues throughout the season, then the Reds certainly won’t be short of suitors, so receiving a decent fee could be a huge boost for Klopp, with the German manager having seemingly decided that Wilson isn’t good enough by sending him out on loan to the Championship.
