Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa keen to sign Liverpool starlet Harry Wilson on ONE condition | Football | Sport


The Anfield youngster is regarded as a future star and has put in a series of eye-catching displays during a loan spell at Derby.

But according to The Sun, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is keen to secure his services if they return to the top flight after a 15-year absence.

Bielsa might not get his own way though. It’s suggested Jurgen Klopp still has high hopes for the 21-year-old and will think carefully before offloading him.

Despite a dazzling start to life with Rams, Wilson’s form has tailed off in recent weeks.

He’s bagged 12 goals in 33 games – and is the Championship side’s top goalscorer – but hasn’t found the net for seven games.

Derby boss Frank Lampard has refused to pile pressure on the youngster though.

The Chelsea legend also has Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori on his books temporarily from his former club.

“I don’t think we should expect them to,” Lampard replied when asked if his young loan players should be hitting top gear every week.

“Our loans have taken a lot of headlines this season, mostly for good reasons but when you break it down Harry is 21, he played half a season at Hull last season and played very well.

“Mason had never played a game in the English competitive leagues (before this season) and Tomori played 20 or so games at Hull last season.

“So when people talk about our loans, they are all young loans, and they have all been very impressive.

“We have to understand a big batch of games or an injury, or whatever, might see a slight drop, maybe, by their own standards. I am very level-headed about that.

“When I came here, I knew we needed an injection of energy in the team for the way I wanted to play.

“We had to look at younger loans, for the budget we had.

“As I said, they have been very impressive for us and we must take the rough with the smooth.

“I thank them for what they have given us so far, they are all great lads and form is temporary. They will all work out of it, if that is the case.

“Harry has certainly been one of our top performers this year.”
