Reliable journalist Alan Nixon has claimed that Leeds United are interested in signing Liverpool winger Harry Wilson on his official Twitter account.
The 22-year-old has been on loan with Derby County this season. He has played well and managed to make 35 appearances in the second-tier for Frank Lampard’s side, scoring 12 goals and recording two assists.
A move could potentially suit both clubs if Leeds were to win promotion to the Premier League next season.
The Whites, who currently sit in second place on the Championship standings, will need to bolster their side this summer to avoid relegation next season in the event that they play in the top-flight.
Reported Leeds target Wilson has certainly done enough this season to warrant opportunities in the Premier League.
Due to the world-class talent that Liverpool have at their disposal, he will probably not get any opportunities for the his parent club so a loan to Elland Road would make sense.
A loan deal to a Premier League club next season will also benefit Reds manager Jurgen Klopp as it will allow the German to see what the youngster can do at the elite level.
Leeds could however face difficulty to sign the Wilson if Derby County manage to win promotion as well.
Lampard’s side are currently in eighth position on the Championship standings and just two points adrift of sixth place Bristol City who occupy the final promotion playoff position.
Wilson’s loan deal with Derby comes to an end at the end of this season. He is contracted to Liverpool until the summer of 2023.
Both Leeds and Derby’s chances of promotion will be impacted over the next few days, with two fixtures for each club in quick-fire succession.
