Celtic are in the market for another English Premier League loan deal this summer, targeting Liverpool’s talented winger Harry Wilson for a switch to the Scottish Premiership.
That’s according to The Scottish Sun, who report that the Hoops are set to rival Steven Gerrard’s Rangers for his signature.
With Hull City and Norwich City also interested in his services according to the paper, competition is fierce in the race the land him on a temporary basis.
The winger is ordinarily rated as worth £900,000 by Transfermarkt, although Liverpool clearly see something in him if they are not willing to part with him permanently.
Wilson has already spent a spell on loan at Hull, impressing at the club in the second half of last season in the English Championship.
He made 13 appearances for the Tigers, scoring seven goals and assists four more. That’s the kind of attacking impact that demonstrates he is not only ready for more first-team football, but has the ability to make an impression in the Scottish top-flight.
With the departure of Patrick Roberts and Stuart Armstrong this summer, the Hoops could do with reinforcements in attacking midfield and although loan deals are never the preferred option for supporters, this is one that could fit the bill, especially since he also possesses the versatility of being able to play on either wing.
