Liverpool’s on-loan star Harry Wilson has set his sights on making an impact at Anfield when he returns from his loan spell at Derby County, stating “my goal is to play for Liverpool”, according to an article from The Daily Mail this morning.
“The main focus this season is to get promoted with Derby.”, Wilson said in the interview.
“But Mason’s [Mount] goal is to play for Chelsea and my goal is to play for Liverpool.
” I have always felt like a Liverpool player. Everything is going along the right path.”
Wilson has been in incredible form this season for Derby, lighting up the Championship with 12 goals and 4 assists in all competitions, but the highlight was undoubtedly scoring a world-class free-kick to knock Manchester United out of the League Cup at Old Trafford back in September.
Klopp kept a close eye on the game, with Wilson saying that he received a text from the Liverpool boss after the full-time whistle saying “he was delighted with the performance — and the goal!”
Another message was forthcoming a few weeks back, with Klopp once again telling the Welshman “to keep going”, serving as “a massive boost” for Wilson, who knows he remains in the manager’s thoughts.
Unlike the majority of Liverpool’s loanees, Wilson is one who has really shone during his spells away from Anfield and has given himself a chance of forging a career on Merseyside.
Pre-season will be massive for Wilson and he’ll need to make an impact to ensure he’s given a chance next season; regardless though, he certainly has a bright future.
