The Reds made sure to sign Harry Wilson to a new deal before sending the 21-year-old out on loan this season with Frank Lampard’s Derby County, a decision that is looking increasingly an excellent one.
The academy graduate has wowed for the Championship side, taking the no. 7 shirt and blasting as many goals in 13 starts so far this season.
The English football world took notice of Wilson’s rise after his Man of the Match performance and savage free kick strike helped his side down Manchester United in the Carabao Cup back in September. The diminutive forward has continued in a similar vein with another wonder goal against fellow Championship side Stoke City.
Scraping the heads of the players in the wall, the Wrexham-born player managed to generate a devilish amount of swerve and pace on the ball to bamboozle England international keeper, Jack Butland and stroke home.
Rumor has it that Wilson only knows how to score bangers from outside the box and appears to be doing his best to turn Jürgen Klopp’s head even as other transfer linkages swirl. Liverpool fans will want to continue keeping an eye on Wilson.
