Liverpool fullback, Neco Williams, is being linked to a £16M transfer fee ahead of a permanent move from Anfield.
The Welshman appears set for a season in the Premier League after reaching an agreement on personal terms with newly promoted Nottingham Forest.
He burst onto the scene as a teenager but has been unable to oust Trent Alexander Arnold from right back. But it’s understandable because the Scouser is one of the best right back in the world.
Liverpool close to selling Neco Williams for £16M
Sky Sports reports that “Forest are in advanced talks with Liverpool” regarding the signing of Williams.
The price “under discussion is thought to be about £16M,” according to the reports. That would represent some very good business for the Reds given the significant outlay sanctioned to bring Darwin Nunez to Anfield.
In order to prepare their team for the start of the new season—their first back in the top division in 23 years—Forest are hoping that negotiations will be concluded in the coming days.
It’s an important move for Williams as he aims to get in shape and firing ahead of Wales’ World Cup tournament at the end of the year.
Liverpool have already replaced Williams with Calvin Ramsay
In keeping with their reputation for brilliance in the transfer market, Liverpool has already signed Calvin Ramsay (18) from Aberdeen as a replacement for Williams.
The domestic competitions will undoubtedly present numerous possibilities for the Scotsman to progress under Jurgen Klopp, but he is anticipated to play a bit-part role despite competing with Alexander-Arnold for a spot in the starting XI.
The team has added two teenage players to the roster in him and Fabio Carvalho.
Ramsay is a top talent, but the latter player is more interesting simply because of his technical prowess.
Klopp to show his world-class management again this season
Jurgen Klopp’s world-class man-management will once again be on display as he juggles fine-tuning his starting XI in the wake of Sadio Mane’s to Bayern Munich with developing and nurturing future talent.
Ramsay, Carvalho, Harvey Elliott and Kaide Gordon are players Liverpool fans are excited about and I’m almost more excited to see them develop than I am about seeing Nunez in action following his high-profile transfer to Anfield.
