Former Premier League player Noel Whelan insisted that Harry Wilson has a future at Liverpool next season.
The former Leeds United and Coventry City striker claimed that his experience with Bournemouth this season will be “invaluable” to Jurgen Klopp’s side. Wilson has been with us since he joined the U9s squad and has played at every level right up to the first team.
Speaking to Football Insider, Whelan is convinced that he has unfinished business at Anfield.
“Yes. They are not shy of giving young players a chance and we have seen that with Alexander-Arnold”, he said. “You look at Chelsea and why not? If they are good enough, get them into the side. Jurgen Klopp has always wanted the kids to come through.
Does Harry Wilson have a future at Liverpool?
“He has a little bit more experience from this season and going into next year that will be invaluable. Wilson will be in the mind of Jurgen Klopp.
“He has experience in the Championship and now the Premier League and that will put him in great stead for next season. Then it is down to him to force his way in and put pressure on the other midfield players at Liverpool and whoever else they sign.”
I can’t help but think that Whelan is wrong on this and that Jones is far ahead of Wilson at a younger age. Having already made himself a cup hero, I would like to see how much Jones improves in the first team, which unfortunately leaves Wilson out of the picture.
