Sources: Liverpool likely to offload £30m-valued player after Klopp texts

Liverpool are likely to offload Harry Wilson this summer following the stunning emergence of Curtis Jones, Football Insider can reveal.

The wide forward, 22, has spent the last two years on loan and been given his first taste of regular Premier League football at Bournemouth this season.

A Liverpool source has told Football Insider the club regard Wilson very highly but they are not expecting him to challenge for a first-team spot next season.

That could lead to a parting of the ways for the Wales international, who is valued at around the £30million market.

He will have three years remaining on his contract in the summer, by which point he will have turned 23.

The Merseyside giants are set to be in the market for a top-quality forward in the market but they do not anticipate losing any of their fabled front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Nevertheless, Mane and Salah are set to be on African Cup of Nations duty midway through the campaign and this is set to force Jurgen Klopp into the transfer market.

With January signing Takumi Minamino likely to be settled by the summer and Jones emerging as a versatile attacking midfielder of immense potential, Wilson may be surplus to requirements.

Klopp is a big admirer of the left footer and Wilson revealed in a Mail interview how he has had regular texts from the Liverpool manager during his loan spell at Bournemouth.

He began the season very impressively for the Cherries, with six league goals by the end of November.

But he has been less effective in recent times, although he has remained a regular starter in a right-sided attacking role.
