Liverpool Striker, Harry Wilson, Joins Bournemouth On Loan

Austin Papi

Football star, Harry Wilson, is on course to have his medicals and complete a move to the Cherries, AFC Bournemouth, on a season-long loan deal from Liverpool.

The 22-year-old Welshman has proven to be a vital scorer, scoring astonishing 16 goals and 4 assists for Derby County in the Championship second tier and playing a key role in Frank Lampard’s milestone of reaching the Championship play-off finals. The winger initially scored 7 goals and will set up 3 other goals during a previous loan stint within the 2017/2018 season with Hull City.

Liverpool had been holding out for a fee of £25million for the winger, but Newcastle, Aston Villa, and other suitors failed to meet the valuation. Liverpool, therefore, opted for a loan move instead.

According to Sky Sports, Wilson is currently on his way to the south coast to complete his medical for Bournemouth. Reports also suggest that the deal does not come with an option or obligation to buy at the end of the 2019/20 campaign. There was a clause added to the contract which implies that Bournemouth will give the youngster, Wilson, a lot of playing time.

Liverpool are spurned of choices in the attack, having the likes of Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, Mane, Salah and Origi. So, Harry would have to develop himself elsewhere, but having shown signs of prospects, Liverpool are reconsidering a permanent move for the youngster.
