Harry Wilson has spoken about the influence of Chelsea boss Frank Lampard on him – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have suggested they make him a transfer target.
Wilson, 22, is currently thriving during a season-long loan at Bournemouth from Premier League leaders Liverpool.
The right-winger has already chipped in with six league goals so far this season for Bournemouth, but his development took a massive step last year.
He spent the campaign in the Championship with ex-Derby manager Lampard and enhanced his reputation massively.
The Wales international managed 18 goals in 50 games across all competitions last season for Derby, as he starred alongside Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori.
Wilson will now travel with Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge for Saturday’s top-flight clash against Chelsea and he’s spoken about the influence of Lampard.
“I owe Frank Lampard a lot,” Wilson said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
“He was fantastic for me last season, probably the most important one in my career so far, the one where I played regular football.
“To play under a legend like him, he taught me a lot. I’m in regular contact with him and it’s great to see him doing so well at Chelsea now.”
A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media have responded to Wilson’s comments by claiming they try reunite him with Lampard in the future in West London.
The dazzling wide player has a tremendous left foot that makes him a set-piece specialist and he’s starting to really make an impact in the Premier League with Bournemouth.
The Blues would have to try negotiate a deal with Liverpool further down the line if they ever do want to chase him, but it’s intriguing to know he’s in regular contact with Lampard.
Here are some Chelsea fans suggesting Wilson as a target:

A goalscoring left footed right winger whose already played under Frank Lampard. Harry Wilson is exactly what we need. Still young with a lot of potential. Much better option than Zaha and he would cost around £40m.
