Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy does not expect Harry Wilson to make it at Anfield despite being an admirer of his talents.
The Wales international has spent the season on loan at Bournemouth, and Murphy feels that the Cherries could well be the level of club who he could sign for on a permanent basis:
“He is a superb talent, he’s a clever footballer, great at set plays He’s confident but he struggles physically, he’s not the quickest and not the biggest. The prerequisite is there has to be a physical presence for a lot of the midfielders coming into the game. I hope he proves me wrong but I think Bournemouth is right for him.”
Reports this week have suggested that the Reds have set a £30m asking price for Wilson. Whether any team would be interested in taking him for that amount, it remains to be seen.
The 22-year-old has had a decent loan spell at Bournemouth, having scored six goals and provided two assists in 26 appearances, but he hasn’t managed to reach the heights some pundits had predicted.
There have been mitigating circumstances in the fact that Wilson has been playing in a struggling team, but as Murphy points out, his lack of pace and physicality means he may not quite cut it at the highest level.
