Wolverhampton Wanderers have today been linked with a new move for Liverpool defender Neco Williams.

Goal have claimed the Black Country club are keen on the full-back, after supposedly considering a move for him last year.

Liverpool are said to be open to selling Williams. They value him at £10 million.

The youngster is supposedly keen to depart in a bid to get first-team football somewhere.

Right now, he is firmly behind Trent Alexander-Arnold in the pecking order.

Williams can also play left-back. But there, he has Andy Robertson ahead of him.

Speaking of Robertson, he has been particularly complimentary about Williams in the past.

The Scotland captain said of the 20-year-old last year (liverpoolfc.com): “I’ve spoken to him, I’ve given him small pointers but I’m not sure he needs them.

 

“He’s got so much ability and so much energy, so much confidence in his own ability that he’ll have a fantastic career in the game.

“But he’s got an abundance of ability and he can play both full-back positions pretty easily, so I’m sure he will push me and Trent all the way next season and that’s what we need to have – healthy competition in the squad.”

Robertson a fan, but Wolves interest strange

Williams is a young player with great promise.

He’s had some tough moments in recent times, but you don’t make 25 first-team appearances for Liverpool by the age of 20 under a world-class coach if you don’t have something about you.

At £10 million, Williams could be a good pickup for someone.

But Wolves arguably don’t really need him.

Ki-Jana Hoever was signed last year and can provide cover on both sides of the pitch.
