Harry Wilson has reiterated his desire to play for Liverpool next season after impressing during his loan spell at Derby County, according to an exclusive interview with The Express.
“I sat down with Jurgen Klopp at Melwood in the summer and we both agreed after doing well at Hull last season it would be good to be on loan again and playing regularly”, Wilson stated.
“There were plenty of clubs wanting me but as soon as my agent Lee Robinson told me Derby were interested I had a good feeling. We are doing well and hopefully we’ll push for promotion.
“To to be learning from a legend like Frank Lampard is fantastic. I’m soaking up everything he’s telling me. It’s going really well.”
The 21-year-old also talked about his admiration for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez and hopes to follow in their footsteps as a young player who can feature regularly for Klopp and make a significant impact at Anfield.
“That’s the aim. I’ll be looking at Trent and Joe today hoping I’m playing with them next season.
“It’s nice to see young lads doing well but when it’s your mates you have grown up and played with it makes it even better.
“When you look at the attacking talent at Liverpool it’s awesome but you’ve got to be confident in your ability otherwise you have no chance.
“It’s always going to be difficult to break in to a team with big stars like Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. But I trained with those guys for over a year before I went on loan to Hull in January and it raised my game.
“When you get a chance on loan you have to shine so when I do go back I’ll be in better shape to impress the manager.”
Wilson has been in sensational form this season in the Championship, scoring 7 goals, including 2 in Derby’s last outing against Swansea; Liverpool fans are also sure to remember his performance at Old Trafford to knock Manchester United out of the Carabao Cup where he scored a sublime free-kick on route to victory.
Having penned a new long-term deal to extend his stay at Anfield in the summer, Wilson is clearly highly rated by Klopp and is set to have a big future and we can’t wait to see him light up the Premier League when given the chance.
