Timo Werner's imminent move to Chelsea hasn't gone down all that well with a vast number of Liverpool fans. But there's one player at the club who may have been left rubbing his hands with glee at the news. That man is Harry Wilson, currently on loan at Bournemouth and whom on Monday had his temporary stay on the south coast extended until the end of the rescheduled Premier League season.

Following on from a strong season at Derby, which yielded 18 goals and six assists, the 23-year-old has managed seven Premier League goals in 23 games this term, 19 of which have been starts.

During his time at the Vitality Stadium the Wales international, his country's youngest ever debutant way back in October 2013, has clearly shown he has the ability to be a regular in the English top flight.

Whether it is for Liverpool is another question entirely - though there is plenty to like about the Wrexham-born winger, who can also play as a No 10, and enough to suggest he deserves an opportunity to prove to Jurgen Klopp he can command a first-team spot.

The former Liverpool under-23s captain, a self-confessed supporter of the Merseyside club, has an eye for goal, first and foremost.

The catalogue of eye-catching long-range strikes and free-kicks he has built up across his stints at Derby and Bournemouth cannot be matched by some forwards who have double or triple his experience of senior football, and he managed just-as-impressive returns for Liverpool's youth teams too.

The Welshman's versatility is another major asset, given he is equally adept at playing on either flank or through the middle, though he has played most of his minutes for the Cherries on the right.

Liverpool do not have a great deal of cover in wide positions, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane virtually unchallenged for their starting spots.

Their alternatives include Divock Origi, Takumin Minamino or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, all of whom better suit other roles in the side.

And so the option of having a player with the goal threat of Wilson in reserve, who is a more natural winger, is surely an attractive one - even if he is not as pacey as the African duo.
