It's a huge week for Liverpool. But for one current Reds player, his big match does not come at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday, but at Wembley on Monday. We're of course talking about Harry Wilson, who will look to round off a stunning season on-loan with Derby County by helping them to victory over Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final. The Wales international has scored 18 goals in all competitions for Frank Lampard's side - and that has led to calls from Liverpool fans calling for him to be given a chance at Anfield next season. On the flipside, Wilson's fantastic form at Pride Park has led him to being linked with £25m moves to a string of Premier League clubs. So what is the Reds' stance on a player who has been with the club he loves since he was a boy? To find out, Paul Wheelock speaks to our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce, who outlines why the Reds are in such a strong position and why the bar for academy players has never been so high. Paul then picks up the phone to Steve Nicholson, who has been reporting on Wilson's exploits in his position as football editor and chief football writer for the Derbyshire Telegraph and Derbyshire Live. Steve explains why the 22-year-old's goal tally is particularly impressive, the hidden edge to his game, his best position, and the influence of Derby boss Lampard. Enjoy.
