Wolves reportedly made an approach to sign Liverpool full-back Neco Williams, before they eventually signed Ki-Jana Hoever.

The Times have claimed Wolves made contact with the Reds over the 19-year-old, but were seemingly rebuffed.

Wolves, of course, were in for a new right-sided option for their defence after losing Matt Doherty to Tottenham Hotspur.

Williams has impressed at Anfield after making his Premier League debut for the club earlier this year.

The youngster is firmly behind Trent Alexander-Arnold in the pecking order, but it seems Jurgen Klopp does see the Wales international as the number two choice.

Wolves, therefore, turned their attention to Hoever, who could cost the club £13.5 million with add-ons (BBC Sport).

Hoever a better option than Williams

Hopefully, Wolves’ deal for Hoever will come good.

The young Dutchman certainly has wonderful promise. Right now though, he isn’t anywhere near the starting XI with Nelson Semedo having nailed down the right wing-back spot.

He could also play as the right-sided centre-half, but Willy Boly is very established.

Williams is also a player with great potential but, arguably, Hoever’s versatility makes him a better acquisition and his time at Molineux will come.
