Harry Wilson’s options and who wants him as he eyes Liverpool exit before Friday
Liverpool are keen to send Harry Wilson out on loan with Swansea and Derby among the EFL clubs interested in the midfielder.
Wilson spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, who were relegated from the Premier League, and is not getting a look in at Anfield.
He was left out of Jurgen Klopp’s Champions League squad having made just two senior appearances for the Reds.
He featured in the Carabao Cup defeat to Arsenal though is now likely to leave Anfield, at least on loan, before Friday’s EFL transfer deadline.
Championship duo Swansea and Derby are among five clubs keen to sign the 23-year-old with Burnley previously coming closest to buying him.
The Clarets are out of the running with Premier League clubs unable to buy from fellow Prem sides, though Swansea have a good relationship with Liverpool.
Rhian Brewster spent time with the Welsh outfit last season and the Swans are showing strong interest.
Derby are also keen with Wilson having had a successful loan at Pride Park two seasons ago, helping the Rams to the Championship play-off final.

Klopp had praised Wilson following his performance against Arsenal, suggesting that he may keep the Welsh midfielder in his squad.
The boss had said: “Harry Wilson, my God, he played in centre-mid and defended well. I like a lot of parts of the game but we lost in the end and that's the part I don't like.
“It is not too easy in a squad like this but they learn and want to learn and they are able to perform in a tricky game today.

“It was tricky not only because they were young but because their manager sends them on to the pitch in a team which doesn't usually play together.”
Liverpool had been willing to sell Wilson this summer, but rejected a bid of £12m from Burnley, believing their player to be worth closer to £20m.
But now it seems the Reds will have to settle for a loan move.
