I think the opposite. Going on loan is a way of putting yourself in the shop window if the club don´t think you have what it takes for LFC.The point I’m making is not Wilson is good enough for LFC, or Wilson should get starts. It’s that his Derby form gives Klopp a problem. That’s it.
Wilson has gone on loan twice and done everything asked of him, he has become a favourite at Derby and got himself into the Wales squad.
Klopp now has to consider whether he brings him back and integrates him into the first team set up, sends him out on loan again, or sells him. Both of the latter two options might be right for the club and Wilson himself, but present a complexity when sending any other lads out on development loans, as they will surely look at how well Wilson did and how it did nothing for his chances of making it at Liverpool. Klopp might reason that, even if his suspicion is that Wilson is a bit lacking at the highest level he needs to find him a first team role for the benefit of every other lad he wants to send out for experience.
