Celtic have opened fresh discussions with Liverpool about the prospect of signing young talent Harry Wilson on loan for the coming season, after watching him action for the Reds on Saturday, according to Goal.

Wilson scored twice for Liverpool, who kicked off their pre-season schedule with a 7-0 rout of National League North side Chester.

Goal report that the Hoops had a representative in attendance and subsequently contacted the Anfield side on Sunday morning to try and structure a deal that would bring the winger to Glasgow for the 2018/19 season.

The latest developments come after reports in The Liverpool Echo last week that Jurgen Klopp had ruled out a move to Celtic Park for Wilson, having concerns about the way the club utilised Patrick Roberts and Charly Musonda on loan last season.

That Celtic still have hope of concluding a deal shows that the door isn’t completely closed on a move, but with multiple English Championship clubs also chasing his signature, the Bhoys face an uphill battle to convince all the parties involved that Wilson’s career is best served in the Scottish Premiership.

Wilson scored seven goals for Hull City in the second half of last season, showing good enough form to be included in the Welsh national team set-up and even perhaps win a new contract with Liverpool.

It looks like this is one potential transfer that could rumble on all summer.
