Harry Wilson was in top form on Saturday for Bournemouth against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
The Wales international was on the scoresheet twice in the 3-2 defeat, with his brace including a stunning free-kick. His impressive 8.19 WhoScored rating was clearly the best amongst his teammates, and it will likely have caught the eye of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
The Reds supporters were also impressed by the 22-year-old’s captivating performance, and were quick to praise the former Hull City loanee.

Harry Wilson has been nothing short of phenomenal.
His free kick-taking has been world class. If big name players were the ones scoring those goals then they’d have people drooling over them.

He is having a good season on the south-coast right now. In 10 starts for the Cherries, he has six goals, which leads the way amongst his teammates, and in his last five games for club and country alone, he has four strikes to his name. He is really beginning to star on a regular basis.
In particular, it was that set-piece that had the Anfield outfit’s supporters talking, with them clearly loving his ability to hit the back of the net from dead-ball situations.
Harry Wilson is some free-kick specialist. Superb goal again https://t.co/0vxgvK1UN4

Harry Wilson is a free kick machine

Not joking, Harry Wilson is the second best free-kick taker after Messi https://t.co/TeLXuQj7X6

Indeed, he knows how to strike a good free-kick. That is his seventh goal from such situations in the last two seasons, which fully illustrates how deadly he is.
In the grander scheme of things, Liverpool fans have been discussing where Wilson fits in to Klopp’s squad moving forward. With Adam Lallana out of contract in the summer, a number of fans are suggesting that the £16.2m-valued man – as per Transfermarkt – could be a replacement for the former Southampton youth product.
Load off Lallana and we will have a place for Wilson

Hope we get raid of Lallana and Milner next season and bring Wilson and Grujic

Origi is a striker/winger.
Klopp appears not to like Shaqiri.
So it’s Lallana or Wilson, I choose Wilson
— AngryLilMan🇵🇸 (@AngryLittleMan1) December 1, 2019
It is certainly an interesting suggestion, and it makes sense for the fans to talk about a replacement for Lallana. But Wilson is a right-winger, whilst the 31-year-old has played mostly in central midfield and defensive midfield this campaign. Given how well he has performed on the right wing for Eddie Howe’s side, Wilson would be competing with Mohamed Salah for a place – that is surely a battle he wouldn’t win.
For now, though, Liverpool fans and Wilson himself can enjoy his form for Bournemouth.
