The Liverpool Echo’s Liverpool correspondent James Pearce has given his thoughts on a number of the Reds’ talented youth prospects, including Harry Wilson.
In a Q&A piece, Pearce was asked whether any of Liverpool’s talented youngsters are being considered by Jurgen Klopp as potential first team players for next season.
Pearce responded: “I really hope Wilson gets a chance to shine as I’ve been so impressed by him at Derby this season.”

Wilson is currently on loan from Anfield at Pride Park, where he is a regular feature in Frank Lampard’s starting XI.
Wilson has been in fine form so far this season. As per Transfermarkt’s stats, the 21-year-old attacking midfielder has racked up twelve goals and four assists in thirty appearances in all competitions.
His confidence and creativity have particularly caught the eye, whilst his ability to deliver set pieces has made him a key asset in the Rams’ armoury.
As impressive as the 8-cap Wales international has been so far this season, the step up from Championship level to thriving at Anfield is a huge one. However, a lack of quality attacking depth in Klopp’s squad could give Wilson an opportunity to prove his worth next season.
If Wilson does get an opportunity at Anfield, he will have to be at his best to take it. Though, Klopp’s record for bringing through exciting young players at the club, such as Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold, bodes well for Wilson.
