If Liverpool requires some proof of how they have been affected by the current situation around the world, then seeing Timo Werner closer to joining Chelsea is surely that. Leaks in recent weeks and months seemed to indicate that this summer the RB Leipzig striker was bound for Anfield and that Jurgen Klopp himself had told the board of his wish for Germany ‘s international signing.
But the Reds have set their sights on Wolves ace Adama Traore with Werner heading for Stamford Bridge, it’s claimed. Move-in, Harry Wilson. The Wales International spent this current loan period on Bournemouth’s fellow Premier League side and it was recently confirmed that his contract with the Cherries was extended to the end of the season.
Ian Doyle of the Liverpool Echo has now claimed that Wilson’s long-term future is up in the air, with Klopp ‘s side unlikely to be charged a big-money fee for him to leave permanently given the current circumstances. And eventually, the Liverpool manager will allow the winger to thrive at Anfield based on his results over the last few seasons.
Wilson turned out for promotion-chasing Derby County last year and he almost shot them into the Premier League with his Championship results. He has struck 15 times in 40 League with his impressive performances for Bournemouth Games and demonstrated the ability to play English football in the top flight. He finds the net back seven times in just 23 games for Eddie Howe ‘s side, including a brace against Arsenal, and a brilliant shot against Manchester City’s title rivals in Liverpool.
As the Reds are pursuing success on multiple fronts next season, having someone like Wilson as an option, whether off the bench or as someone to lighten the burden on Mohamed Salah.
Because of first charging the highest dollar for Traore, the Liverpool boss would seriously consider allowing Wilson to truly stake his claim to see if he can save millions on the transfer market for the Merseyside club.
