Liverpool rising star sets himself big target after agreeing deal
By Dominic Toner
Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson wants to work his way up to the first team after agreeing a new contract with the club.
The young attacker signed his first professional contract with the Reds in 2014 and he is highly rated in the Liverpool youth ranks.
Wilson, 19, agreed a new deal with Liverpool in the summer and hopes to make a good impression on manager Jurgen Klopp.
The winger has explained that he is now back to full fitness and believes he has the quality to play in the senior side.
“Last season didn’t go as well as I wanted and I missed a large part of the season with injuries,” Wilson told BBC Sport. “It was nice to be offered a new contract and now that I’m fit I can show the club the qualities that I’ve got and work my way up to the first-team.”

He has made 36 appearances for the club’s Under-23s, scoring 13 goals and supplying seven assists.
The attacker was also sent out on loan to Crewe and he struggled to make an impression in his seven games for them.
Wilson was recently appointed the captain of the Under-23s side and is expected to have a big future at Anfield.
