Why Bournemouth must permanently sign Harry Wilson
Bournemouth were able to land one of the hottest properties from last season in Harry Wilson.
The Cherries signed the 22-year-old on loan from Liverpool till the end of the season, and Sky Sports adds that the deal doesn’t have an option to make the move permanent.
The Welsh winger was one of the stars in the Championship and helped Derby reach the play-off final. The Rams were beaten by Aston Villa and Wilson returned to Liverpool for their pre-season.
The youngster performed well in most of the games for the Reds and the report claims that Liverpool see Wilson as part of their future plans.
Eddie Howe has completed some deals with the Reds in the past with mixed success, but the Cherries have to make this move a permanent one.
A star in the making
Wilson scored on his debut for the Cherries in their 2-1 win over Aston Villa. This was a typical goal from the Welshman, though the long-range strike got a deflection on its way into the net.
The 22-year-old has always impressed on his loan deals, first at Hull City and then at Derby. Wilson bagged 16 goals and provided four assists in the Championship last season, and Bournemouth is a great place for him to polish his skills.
Howe is an excellent manager and has built a resilient Bournemouth team since they were promoted to the Premier League.
The manager has signed some players from Merseyside but none of them
Wilson made an instant impact on his debut but has to continue developing his skills to keep his place in the team.
David Brooks was missing from the Bournemouth squad at the weekend while former Liverpool youngster, Jordon Ibe, can also play out wide.
However, Wilson could turn out to be one of the smartest loan deals of the summer and Howe should make this deal permanent sooner rather than later.
Wilson would be a regular starter at the Vitality while a return to Liverpool would see him play second fiddle to Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The youngster needs Premier League starts to continue his development, and those will keep coming should he remain at the Cherries.
Wilson is a talent for the future but he seems to be doing just fine after joining the Cherries.
Bournemouth’s Liverpool signings haven’t all been great but Wilson could be the best one of the lot if they can keep him beyond this season.
