Why Leeds should swoop for 20-year-old PL winger reportedly set for Championship move
COMMENT By Derek Smithson
Leeds should attempt to sign Liverpool wide man Harry Wilson in the summer as he is reportedly set to be sent out on loan by the Premier League giants.
The Liverpool Echo claim that the 20-year-old winger needs to experience first-team football after starring for the club’s Under-23s side.
The report details that it’s “more likely” he will be loaned out to the Championship rather than stay at Anfield next season.
Leeds should put their name forward to sign the Wales International as he could be a brilliant fit at Elland Road.
The Whites certainly need to bring in some creative players to their side during the upcoming window, regardless of whoever is in the manager’s seat.

They lacked a cutting edge in the wide areas under former boss Garry Monk and he constantly rotated his options, but Wilson looks like he has the quality to demand a starting position in Leeds starting XI.
The youngster is considered to be one of the best upcoming talents at the Merseyside club and a loan experience to help his development seems a sensible idea.
Leeds would be boosted by the arrival of the Liverpool Under-23 captain, who is renowned for his goalscoring threat from the wide position for the youth side.
Chris Wood would surely be delighted with the service that the youngster can provide and he could also chip in with some valuable goals.
Wilson is knocking on the first-team door for Liverpool and would be desperate to prove his ability, so Leeds should pounce and help their own promotion bid in the process.
