Liverpool winger Harry Wilson scored an excellent goal from long-range during the Reds’ 3-1 win against Lyon last night. He hit a sweetly struck shot with his left foot into the top corner eight minutes into the second half.
The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a permanent switch away from Anfield this summer, but fans on Twitter are hoping that manager Jurgen Klopp keeps the Wales international in his first-team squad this season:

Speaking after the win against Lyon, Klopp singled out Wilson for his goal and overall performance:
The Merseyside club are said to be holding out for at least £25m for the Welshman, with Aston Villa, Newcastle, Bournemouth and even Borussia Dortmund all mentioned as possible destinations for the player.
Many supporters will be hoping that the transfer deadline passes next week without the winger’s departure from the Reds being announced. The window shuts on August 8th.
