Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits the club are in “constant conversations” over the future of Wales winger Harry Wilson. The 22-year-old spent last on loan at Derby County and proved his ability in the second tier of English football.

Wilson scored 15 goals in 40 Championship matches to help Derby reach the play-off final, where they eventually lost to Aston Villa. After impressing last season, Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United have all shown an interest in his services.

Klopp has refused to confirm if he will leave again on loan after Wilson impressed during the 3-1 win over Lyon on Wednesday, scoring the final goal.

When asked about his future, Klopp told reporters: “We will see what happens in the next eight or nine days until the window closes. “We are in constant conversations, that’s clear.

We have to do the right thing for us and for the boy. He is obviously a really good player and I was really happy with him in the whole pre-season. “I am happy for him. He played not in his best position, he played left wing and did it really well.

“We tried to set it up a little bit so it is more comfortable for him with positioning and stuff like that. When he scored the goal, it was just Harry. Brilliant.” Wilson will be hoping to remain at Anfield as he tries to help the Reds secure their first Premier League crown.

Liverpool start the 2019-20 campaign with a home clash with Norwich and are priced at 3.50 to win the league title, with Manchester City 1.53 favourites.
