A lot of respect was paid to Harry Wilson by Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after the Reds were beaten 5-4 by Arsenal in the Carabao Cup clash.
Over the course of 90 minutes, the net could not be reached, although the home side created some really good opportunities. Arsenal then finished off Liverpool on penalties to reach the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
The Reds manager was full of praise for his young players in spite of the loss.
Rhys Williams and Neco Williams both began, while amid continuing speculation about his future Harry Wilson made his full Reds bow.
Despite the absence of a decisive spot-kick in the shoot-out, Wilson was very impressive said Reds boss.
“Harry Wilson, my Goodness, played in the center, and defended well. I like a lot of parts of the game, but we’ve lost in the end, and that’s the part I don’t like,” said Klopp, quoted by Liverpool Echo.
Wilson is a highly regarded left-footed winger who came to the club from the youth ranks. But it’s still hard for him to break into the first team, and the Reds are probably trying to get him off this season.
However, Claret’s opening bid is thought to fall far short of the original Reds’ asking price. Premier League outfit Burnley wants to sign him.
Leicester Fulham, Southampton, Leeds, and Newcastle have also shown interest in signing Wilson, who was credited eight times in Bournemouth last season.
