Harry Wilson has revealed it is his ambition and intention to be playing for Liverpool next season after a loan spell at Cardiff City this year in the Sky Bet Championship.
Wilson is a talented player with a wand of a left foot and at times in recent years we have seen him do well for Derby and Cardiff in the second tier.
Indeed, he’s had a good season with the Bluebirds this time around with him hitting a superb hat-trick on Saturday afternoon against Birmingham City with three wonderful goals with his left foot.
And, speaking after the game, he told BBC Sport he has plans to try and make a splash at Liverpool:
“I feel I’m good enough to be in that squad.
“I’d like to think I could go in there and add something different.
“It’s always been my aim to get into the Liverpool team and play for the club I’ve been at since I was eight. But you know the quality Liverpool have got, the famous front three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane].
“I’ve always been confident in my ability and, playing with the players in that team, I feel it would help me with my game.”
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
You have to admire his confidence and we’ll have to see whether this season’s form can translate into something more at Liverpool.
His good spell at Derby a couple of years ago didn’t lead to more Reds minutes and so there is still something he obviously needs to prove to Jurgen Klopp.
Evidently, though, he’s a player that now needs to be playing regularly somewhere and time will soon tell where he ends up doing that next.
