Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson is in contention to make his debut on Wednesday.
The German manager has revealed that the 19-year-old is in his thoughts for Wednesday’s FA Cup third-round replay against Plymouth.
The winger was omitted from the club’s Under-23s side on Monday and has been with the first-team to train.
Klopp has explained that he highly rates Wilson and admits he could feature against Plymouth.
“He’s a wonderful young player. He’s part of our thoughts for this game,” Klopp said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

Klopp has shown a desire to introduce youngsters into the first-team this season and the Under-23s captain Wilson looks set to be the next in line.
He could play alongside the likes of Ovie Ejaria, Ben Woodburn, Sheyi Ojo and Trent Alexander-Arnold, who all started in the goalless draw with Plymouth recently.
The Merseyside club will now be hoping to book their place in the fourth-round of the cup and it should be a great opportunity for Wilson to impress.
The Welsh attacker has been in great touch in front of goal this season, scoring 19 goals and supplying nine assists so far.
In other Liverpool team news, a senior player has undergone treatment on a knee injury and is doubtful for Plymouth.
