Leeds United are in the hunt to loan Liverpool youngster Harry Wilson amid the imminent appointment of Marcelo Bielsa as their new boss, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post

The regional newspaper report that the Whites are among several clubs interested in the 21-year-old, who had a highly successful spell on loan at Hull City in 2017/18.

The Evening Post claim that the appointment of Bielsa is set to spark their summer spending, with Wilson among their preferred attacking targets.

Good move for Liverpool?

Another loan looks the best move for Wilson as the youngster looks to continue his development, and Liverpool would surely be agreeable towards a move to Leeds.

The Whites offer the biggest opportunity for players to impress in the second tier, and Wilson would have to step up to the plate on such a big stage.

Another successful loan spell in the Championship would put Wilson in the best possible position to challenge for a first-team breakthrough at Anfield in the near future.

All in all it is a move that makes sense for the Reds, who would be giving Wilson the best chance to keep up his recent development.

Likely to happen?

It looks certain that Wilson will be loaned out again this summer, but whether Leeds will be named the winners in that race is yet to be seen.

The Whites would surely be in with a big shout should they make their interest known to Liverpool, with few other clubs able to offer such a big stage to the youngster.

However, there will be heavy competition, and Wilson’s own desires will surely come into the equation, with his intentions as yet unknown this summer.
