Following the arrivals of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota, Liverpool’s squad is in need of trimming with departures expected before deadline day for a number of fringe players. Key amongst those is 23-year-old Welsh winger Harry Wilson.

Once seemingly destined for great things with the Reds, Liverpool’s ascension to the top rank of European and English football over the past few years seems to have left the youngster behind—but Wilson remains a significant talent.

A talent who appears as though he could end up at Turf Moor this season as multiple journalists with ties to Liverpool are today reporting a Burnley approach for the player, though as yet at least it seems no formal bid has been made.

Burnley finished 10th last season but often struggled for goals, and Wilson’s knack for over-performing his expected goals numbers from distance over multiple seasons could make him a good fit for Sean Dyche’s defensively stubborn Clarets.

Liverpool have previously been rumoured to be seeking a fee of around £20M for Wilson, who spent last season on loan with Bournemouth, where he scored seven goals and added a pair of assists in 35 total appearances.
