LIVERPOOL star Harry Wilson should leave the club permanently in order to get the first-team football he deserves.
That is the opinion of another former Liverpool and Derby player Stephen Warnock.
The Reds are not expected to attack the transfer market with as much ferocity as they did last summer.
In 2018, they broke the world-record fee for a goalkeeper when they forked out £60m for Alisson, as well as purchasing Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho.
It helped them secure a sixth Champions League trophy – as well as running Manchester City close for their money in the Premier League.
This year is set to be more about departures – with two high-profile players leaving already in Daniel Sturridge and Alberto Moreno.
But one of the loanees that impressed last year has also been told to get out of Anfield as soon as possible.
Wilson was one of the top performers at Derby in the season just gone.
But former full-back Warnock has warned the winger that he will not break into the first-team at Liverpool because of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
“If Liverpool get an offer for Harry Wilson that matches a valuation that they think they can accept, I think he’ll go,” Warnock told LFC TV.
“I think it’s difficult for someone like Harry to look at (Sadio) Mane and (Mo) Salah, can he break in-front of them?
“You’ve got to be on a different level to break in-front of those players.
“Is he at that level, or is he happy to sit behind them and maybe play in the FA Cup, League Cup and a couple of Champions League games here and there?
“You can see from last year, consistently playing games at Derby was the biggest thing that he could do.
“Playing 40 games in a season is the best thing that you can have, knowing that you’re going to play week in, week out, not ‘I might play in five weeks time’.
“So that’s a decision he’s going to have to make and it might be taken out of his hands by the club anyway.”
