Musonda’s lack of Celtic gametime has put Liverpool off loaning them Wilson

The lack of gametime afforded to Chelsea loanee Charly Musonda at Celtic has caused Liverpool concerns over loaning starlet Harry Wilson to the club, according to Goal.

What’s the story, then?

Goal report that Celtic retain an interest in signing highly-rated Welsh wideman Wilson, who hit seven goals in 14 games on loan at Hull last season.

However, they claim that Jurgen Klopp would prefer for the winger to remain in England and says that the German has concerns over the lack of Parkhead gametime afforded to Chelsea prospect Charly Musonda last season and doesn’t want Wilson to end up in a similar situation.

They say that Klopp does not want to send Wilson to a club where he will not play regularly and has not ruled out the possibility of keeping the hotshot at Anfield next season.

Musonda’s loan spell didn’t work out

On the face of it, you can understand Liverpool’s stance on this one but the main reason Musonda didn’t work out at Celtic was because the player failed to live up to expectations.

That being the case, Rodgers was absolutely correct not to shoehorn the Chelsea prospect – no matter how highly rated he is – into his plans.

If Wilson was to replicate his Hull form, there is little doubt that he would be a much bigger success at Celtic and it feels slightly harsh on Rodgers that he is essentially being punished for Musonda’s shortcomings.
