Harry Wilson & Liverpool
Harry Wilson is a product of Liverpool’s youth system and would enjoy a prolific stint with their under-23 side, which saw him score 32 and provide 14 assists in 60 outings.
Despite this, Wilson has never really been given a chance to impress with the Reds’ senior side.
All told, the now 24-year-old has lined out for Liverpool’s first-team on just two occasions to date, with Wilson instead farmed out on series of loans to the likes of Bournemouth and Derby County.
Wilson’s latest loan saw him join Championship outfit Cardiff City in October of 2020.
Wilson would go on to provide 12 assists and seven goals in 37 league outings last term, including a hat-trick vs Birmingham in May:

Wilson to Brentford?
Now, after returning to Anfield Wilson, who is under contract till 2023, has been linked with several sides.
It was reported at the end of June that the Wales international was of interest to Benfica, but the Portuguese powerhouse had yet to get close to Liverpool’s valuation – believed to be around £12m.
Benfica among clubs chasing Harry Wilson this summer, have made an official approach although they are yet to get close to #LFC valuation (around £12m).
Brentford and West Brom also keen. Liverpool want permanent deal, not a loan.

The same report suggested that Brentford and West Brom were also keen.
And now, a fresh update has provided some further insight into Brentford’s reported interest.
According to the Sun, the Bees are ready to offer around £10m for Wilson.
The Sun suggest Liverpool are ready to let Wilson go, with the emergence of Harvey Elliott believed to have pushed Wilson even further away from the first team.
