Little disappointed that he isnt going to stay, but i guess he is way down the pecking order right now, just hope all those players ahead of him stay fit, no reason why they wont, its not like Ox, Lallana, Keita and Shaqiri have had injuries problems. :rolleyes:

Lets hope he takes another step forward and has a great season down the south coast, good manager and a good team.

The reality is that he is 22 at at the age where he needs football.

This can’t all be about LFC, and keeping him knocking about the club in the hope of a game. This is a critical point for him.

Would have thought last season would have been his last loan deal, but this is surely it. A great season with Bournemouth and clubs will all come knocking, and then Klopp will have to decide if he feels his is good enough for Liverpool.

Klopp's been more than fair with him. He's given him plenty of opportunities to shine and make an impression and, ultimately, if both he and Klopp feel that he's only likely to be used in a bit-part role then that's not what he needs at his age. If he was as good as he is now but still only 19 (like Brewster) then it might be different, he would still be at the age where a gradual introduction to first team senior football might be beneficial but the fact is he's 22 and needs regular first team senior starts.

It is also down to him now. While in a different situation, Origi was also almost certain to go but his attitude and willingness to dig his heels in, work hard, scoring key goals helped of course and now gotten a new deal. For Wilson, I think he certainly does not have to think that he can only play for Liverpool, he needs to think he is good enough and the objective is to go to Bournemouth and prove to Klopp that what he has done in Derby, he can repeat it at the highest level. If he can replicate his form at Derby in the PL and with the right attitude, who is to say he cannot come back next season to be a first teamer? That is probably the reason why Klopp only wants to sanction a loan and not a sale.

He has to do more than he did at Derby though, because we need players who have more to their game than that.

What more could he have done at Derby? Keep in mind it's a team game and you need to play how the manager wants within the formation and tactics the team is set up in. He was absolutely great for them even though Lampard was quite limited and one dimensional. Derby weren't a fancied side either.

How do you mean he was great for them? Because he scored some worldies? If you read Derby fans they think he would be largely ineffective in a game then pop up with a super goal. Is that what Klopp wants from his players? He allowed Coutinho to leave as his main arsenal was speculative long range efforts. Apparantly Lampard built his tactics around long shots apparently. The Premiership is much much harder to score from long range, you also get far less chances to do so. If that’s all Wilson was bringing its not enough. He needs to develop his all round game.. Look at what Salah and Mane bring from outwide. Goal scoring threat, runs inbehind, the ability to be a playmaker when coming deep, great link up play etc.

Bournemouth is a place for Wilson to prove he can play pass and move and be a creative outlet and also a scoring threat, but not underpinned solely on long range goals.

He was in a side built around long range goals, partially because the team were quite limited, so that's why they worked towards getting him into those situations. 18 goals and 6 assists in 49 games, not sure how he could do any better. Wasnt a striker and not a winger in the style of Salah and Mane so certainly wasnt given the chance to play like them.

Which is part of my point. Whether or not he was asked to do more at Derby he has to for us because what Klopp will demand is much greater. If he can make that step up, then he may have a future here, otherwise he probably wont.

Good move for him as he was never getting a look-in with us. Decent player with good technique but I couldn't see where he fitted in. Surely we're going to buy someone from Bournemouth soon given all these deals were doing with them. Brooks is good, although currently injured.

He was penned in to play for Leicester City on loan this season anyway,the deal was all but agreed untill LCFC took on Rodgers and Klopp pulled the plug on the deal,so our plan to give him a season in the Premiership on loan has worked out i guess.Hopefully this move will give Klopp a better look at him,playing top class footie and make a proper decision next summer,we also get almost £3mill in the deal aswell,which is cool.

Absolutely brilliant move, both for the club and the player. Well done Klopp and co. The lad has now the chance to prove at PL level that he has what it takes while having the opportunity to develop himself further by playing regularly, which is crucial for him at this stage. Really pleased with this.
