Harry Wilson is having a reasonably OK season at Bournemouth, but his bubble could burst because of one man.

Wilson, who has been at Anfield since he played in our U9s squad and played at every youth level for us, right the way up to the first-team.

Unfortunately for the Wales international, he has not had much game time in Jurgen Klopp’s side and has appeared just once, during our 1-0 win against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup third-round replay in 2017.

Reports have emerged recently suggesting that Wilson could be offloaded in the summer for around £30m, which may put Bournemouth off from taking him permanently.

While the Welshman is a talented footballer, the rise to fame of one man and his instant impact could get in his way.

Which player should Jurgen Klopp prioritise?

Curtis Jones burst onto the scene has earned him the praise and the plaudits that he deserves – as one of the leading lights in Liverpool’s youth system.

His goal against Everton during our 1-0 win at Anfield in January illustrated all of that. Former Reds favourite John Aldridge believes that he possesses “good arrogance” that will help him become a regular first-team player in the future.

At the age of 19, he already has two goals and one assist in nine outings and is much further down the road than Wilson was at his age. Jones is also versatile enough to play in the No. 10 role and on the left-hand side, which we all know that Klopp likes.

I hope he can keep his head down and continue to shine. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s journey has been inspiring and winning the Champions League before the age of 21 is the new benchmark for all players coming through. He said that he was “just a normal lad from Liverpool whose dreams came true”, which is now a mural near Anfield.

As a result, his rise could be a significant factor as to why the German tactician will be open to selling Wilson in the summer and open the door to another story of a Scouser in red.
