Harry Wilson aiming for Liverpool return after stunning Derby start


The 21-year-old has his sights set on starting for his boyhood club come next season

Harry Wilson has insisted he wants to be a Liverpool first-teamer next season after starring for Derby in the Championship.

Wilson has been with the Reds since he was eight-years-old but has spent the past two seasons on loan in the second tier.

Last year the versatile forward impressed at Hull but this term he’s taken his game to a whole new level under Frank Lampard in the east Midlands.

Seven goals in just 13 appearances have seen plenty of Liverpool fans call for his return, and the 21-year-old has claimed that he wants to be with Jürgen Klopp’s men for 2019/20.

“I sat down with Jürgen Klopp at Melwood in the summer and we both agreed after doing well at Hull last season it would be good to be on loan again and playing regularly,” he told the Liverpool Echo.

“There were plenty of clubs wanting me but as soon as my agent Lee Robinson told me Derby were interested I had a good feeling.

“We are doing well and hopefully we’ll push for promotion.

“To to be learning from a legend like Frank Lampard is fantastic. I’m soaking up everything he’s telling me. It’s going really well.”

Wilson is close friends with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez and now he is desperate to line up alongside them.

“That’s the aim. It’s nice to see young lads doing well but when it’s your mates you have grown up and played with it makes it even better.”
