Leeds could try to lure Wilson

13th June 2018, 15:32 by Aidan Perkins

Liverpool starlet Harry Wilson has emerged as a transfer target for Leeds United, who are keen on a loan deal.

The Whites are expected to appoint former Argentina and Chile boss Marcelo Bielsa as their new manager this week and it's claimed one of the first players he would like to bring in is Liverpool youngster Wilson.

The midfielder impressed on loan at Hull City last season, scoring seven goals, while he also managed four assists during his time at the KCOM Stadium and he's set to be in demand this summer.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expected to give the winger a chance to impress during some of the pre-season games against Chester, Tranmere Bury and Blackburn in July and he's likely to be included in the travelling party for the summer tour to USA.

There remains a chance he could be retained and be a part of the first-team squad for the 2018-19 campaign but another loan move away may be decided as the best course of action for the 21-year-old's development.

Leeds would be keen if Liverpool decide to let him leave temporarily again but they will face competition from several other Championship clubs for his services, including former team Hull, while Premier League duo Fulham and Huddersfield Town are also thought to be interested.
