Leeds United may reignite their interest in Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson this summer.
That is the view of former Whites striker Noel Whelan, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 24-year-old’s recent comments about his future at Anfield.
Wilson told the BBC that he is “determined to get a move” away from Liverpool this summer if he is not going to be involved in the first team squad their next season.
Whelan suggested the Wales international, who is currently on loan at Cardiff City, would be an upgrade on the Whites’ current number 10 Tyler Roberts.
“Wilson could be an option for us,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs. “He is better than Tyler Roberts.
“Roberts has had a good run of games now and Marcelo Bielsa has talked about consistency and for me he has not shown it. Roberts has been given a really good crack of the whip in the second half of the season and do not think he has been consistent. He hasn’t nailed that position down.
“When you are talking about a number 10, you need to be the star player. You need the one who creates, the one that opens up the door. He cannot do that on a regular basis.
“Wilson is a busy player, he has an eye for a pass, pace and a wonderful left-foot. He can adapt to a number of roles as well which is what Marcelo Bielsa likes.”
