Bournemouth have opened negotiations with Liverpool over a potential loan deal for winger Harry Wilson, as they look to replace the injured David Brooks.
Brooks is expected to miss at least three months of action after suffering an ankle injury, so the Cherries are eager to bolster their options on the wing as soon as possible.
As a result, the Daily Mail claim that Bournemouth have set their sights on Wilson. They were open to a £25m permanent deal. However, Liverpool have indicated that they do not want to lose Wilson permanently and would prefer a loan option.
They are adamant that, should Wilson leave on loan, he must be guaranteed game time. As a result, Liverpool will look to include clauses in the deal which would see Bournemouth forced to pay a penalty fee if he does not feature enough.
He managed 18 goals and six assists in the second tier last season and is still held in high regard by many at Anfield. A temporary spell with another Premier League side could be enough to make or break his future at Liverpool.
There was a belief that Wilson may be able to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's plans after enjoying an impressive pre-season, but he was not even part of the matchday squad for Liverpool's Community Shield loss to Manchester City, with Klopp preferring the likes of Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
