Liverpool have high hopes for the season ahead.
After winning the Premier League last term the expectation on Merseyside is that they’ll go on to take the crown once again.
While they’ve looked dominant for large spells, we’ve seen a soft underbelly this term that could prove costly.
The Reds have conceded a staggering 11 goals so far this term, including seven against Aston Villa last week.
It’s results like that that they’ll need to knock on the head if they’re to go the distance.
As far as summer signings go Liverpool can be pleased with their business.
The additions of Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota in particular will go a long way to adding the required depth to ensure that Klopp’s side can compete on all fronts this term.
But such additions look to mean a lack of opportunities for others.
One player who will be affected is Harry Wilson.
The winger has spent the last two seasons out on loan with Derby County and Bournemouth, but was hoping to fight for his place at Anfield this term.
However with game time likely to be limited, Paul Gorst of the Liverpool Echo believes that he may now be ushered towards the exit door before the end of the domestic transfer window on Friday 16.
Writing in a Q&A, Gorst said: “I think he could leave on loan, yes. I was told today there has been no change or update on Wilson’s situation.
“The club were adamant he would not be loaned but they might have to revise that plan now. I think they might discuss a loan when he returns from international duty.
“It suits LFC to have him performing elsewhere, catching eyes of suitors than playing for U23s.”
Gorst added: “I think the Portuguese window is now closed.
“The only place Wilson can go is to the Championship but I imagine he won’t be short of suitors there. We will know more when he returns from international duty. A loan suits everyone concerned.”
