Former Red Danny Murphy believes that Liverpool should consider selling midfielder Harry Wilson come the summer.

Wilson, who is currently on loan at Bournemouth, has scored seven goals for the Cherries this season.

However, despite having a solid run at another Premier League club, Murphy believes that Liverpool could be better off selling the midfielder.

Murphy believes that Wilson lacks the physicality needed to make it at Liverpool under boss Jurgen Klopp.

Murphy also stated that it will be difficult for Wilson to make it at Anfield due to his position, as there are world-class players already operating in his preferred spot on the pitch.

“It’s a difficult one. He did well yesterday, he’s a superb talent, he’s a clever footballer great at set plays,” Murphy told talkSPORT, as quoted by HITC.

“He’s confident but he struggles physically, he’s not the quickest and not the biggest. The prerequisite is there has to be a physical presence for a lot of the midfielders coming into the game.

“I hope he proves me wrong but I think Bournemouth is right for him.”

Murphy’s opinion would no doubt be different to the majority of the Liverpool supporters. Wilson is seen as a player that could seriously go places, which means that many Liverpool supporters would like to see the 22-year-old get his chance.

However, Murphy did raise one point that many will agree on. It will be difficult for Wilson to ever get into Liverpool’s first XI consistently because of the quality of Klopp’s team.
