An insight into Liverpool’s plans for out-of-favour midfielder Harry Wilson has been forthcoming online over the last 24 hours.

23-year-old Wilson has been on the books of Liverpool for 15 years, having made his way through the club’s youth ranks.

To this point, however, despite being highly-regarded, the versatile midfielder is yet to make a Premier League appearance for the Reds.

The last couple of seasons have seen Wilson farmed out on a trio of consecutive loan spells.

After impressing with both Hull City and Derby County in the Championship, the Welsh international joined Bournemouth last summer, in a bid to adapt to the rigours of top-flight football.

And Wilson, for the most part, subsequently went on to build on his reputation during his time at the Vitality Stadium.

Despite having fallen out of favour over the course of Bournemouth’s run-in, he managed to feature in all but 7 of the Cherries’ 38 Premier League outings.

Wilson also chipped in with 7 goals, with his free-kick prowess a particular highlight.

Liverpool make decision

The 23-year-old’s future, however, looks set to lie firmly away from the southwest.

Bournemouth were of course one of 3 sides to have been sent packing from the Premier League following the campaign’s conclusion.

With it also highly unlikely that he would be in line for any sort of consistent game-time at Anfield next season, though, another Liverpool exit over the coming weeks has long looked likely for Wilson.

And, as outlined above, an insight into the plans of Jurgen Klopp and co. has this week been forthcoming.

As reported by the reliable Paul Gorst of the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are not prepared to send Wilson out on another loan in 2020/21.

Instead, it has been made clear to any and all suitors that a considerable sum will be required to land the Welsh talent:

‘Put up or shut up is essentially the message for any interested parties, say Anfield sources.’

It is added that a ‘loose’ asking price of around £20 million has been set for Wilson.
