Liverpool’s young striking sensation Harry Wilson has signed a new contract with the club, and fans are delighted.
The Wales international, who scored seven in 13 games on loan for Hull last season, and who also scored a brace for Liverpool in a friendly against Chester on Saturday said he wants to impress Jurgen Klopp.
“When it got offered to me, I was desperate to get everything sorted so I could sign it fairly early on in pre-season because I want to focus on playing football,” Wilson said on the official LFC website.
“So, now this is sorted, I feel I can do that and push on and try and impress.”
The news of the long-term contract was announced on the official Liverpool Twitter page on Tuesday evening.

Lots of Liverpool fans think that he deserves a shot in the Liverpool first-team, and at 21-years-old, if he doesn’t get it soon, it might never happen for him.
However, it was also reported today that he would likely be sent out on loan again next season, with lots of Championship clubs vying for his signature.
Here are the best reactions from Liverpool fans to the confirmed new deal:
Brilliant. Now keep him for backup & cup games and don’t sign Shaqiri.

Great news. Very happy we have tied him down. Can see an excellent few years ahead for Harry. Hopefully this season with us (or on loan) will see him get some top class game time too.

There’s no doubt that Harry Wilson is a big talent who could go on to be a bona fide superstar. May Liverpool fans want to see him given the chance to do that at Anfield, but others don’t think he’s ready to go straight into the first team. However, as a back-up man, and a threat from the bench? Wilson could be just what Liverpool need this season.
