Premier League: Harry Wilson Faces an Uncertain Future at Anfield

18th June 2020

On June 8th, it was announced that Harry Wilson will stay at Bournemouth for the remainder of the Premier League campaign. It was a sensible decision for all parties, and although the Cherries have just nine games left to play, this should allow the talented Welshman to get some more top flight minutes under his belt. However, once the current season concludes, the 23-year old will find himself back at Melwood with no guarantee of seeing any first-team action next season. With Liverpool actively looking to strengthen this summer, the Wrexham-born midfielder's future on Merseyside remains uncertain. 

Wilson is currently on the fourth loan spell of his professional career, spending time at Crewe, Hull, and Derby County before making the temporary switch to the Vitality Stadium. Once again, he's produced a string of impressive performances and many Liverpool fans are desperately hoping to see him make the breakthrough next season. In Dorset, he's scored seven times and boasts the best goals-per-minute average in the squad. Although he is yet to claim an assist, he has a pass accuracy of 76.5% and averages two shots per game. 

Despite these impressive numbers, the midfielder cannot afford to rest on his laurels, and he is likely to face an uphill battle to break into Liverpool's starting XI next season. As a boyhood Reds fan, he appears to be determined to represent the Merseyside club in the top tier, and has reportedly already spoken to Jurgen Klopp about his plans for the 2020-21 campaign.

The current climate could work in Wilson's favour, with transfer fees likely to take a significant downturn this summer as the majority of Premier League clubs are forced to cut their cloth accordingly. With little value to be found, and a large number of sides planning to curb their outgoings for the next twelve months, Liverpool may decide to keep hold of the set-piece specialist, and give him the opportunity to prove himself at his parent club. 

Although Jurgen Klopp is reasonably well-stocked in this department, injuries could easily strike, and having players such as Wilson in his squad will enable the German boss to rotate on a semi-regular basis. The Reds are already a little light on numbers heading into the final nine fixtures, with both Mo Salah and Andy Robertson having picked up knocks in recent weeks. Although the leaders are still expected to wrap up their first title in thirty years, these setbacks may just prevent them from securing the long-awaited silverware until at least July.

Although they remain 1/1000 in the English Premier League winner odds with Paddy Power, it's rivals Manchester City who have been priced up as the 4/9 favourites to pick up the most points once the top flight gets back underway. Many believe that the Reds will stumble over the line this year and, with the fitness of their key players an obvious concern, Klopp will be keen to ensure his side are able to cope with a relatively quick turnaround this summer. 

Harry Wilson is highly regarded at Anfield, and supporters are understandably keen to see the club promote their young stars. However, with the transfer market unlikely to be buoyant anytime soon, his future remains extremely unclear. He'll be desperately hoping that he's done enough to earn a place in the match-day squad next season, although another Premier League loan spell is not completely out of the question.
