Wolves might be targeting the wrong Liverpool player

Wolverhampton Wanderers are being linked with a move for Neco Williams.

The full-back is supposedly a target for Molineux officials and is valued at around £10 million by Liverpool.

Goal claim the Reds are happy to offload him this summer, and that the youngster would be willing to embark on a new chapter.

Wolves are said to be keen, although Leeds United are in the mix, as are Southampton.

If Wolves really do have interest in Williams, then it’s somewhat diffcult to understand the logic.

He’s a right-back, and Wolves already have two in Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever.

The Wales international can also play at left-back, but that’s something Hoever can also do.

If Wolves would be willing to spend £10 million to sign a player from Liverpool, then surely it should be Nat Phillips instead.

He’s available at that price too according to Daily Mail.

Phillips made a big impression at the heart of the Liverpool defence last season as he covered for injured star Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.

He drew particular praise for his aerial dominance.

Phillips could be shrewd Wolves signing

Wolves have brought in youngster Yerson Mosquera, and still need a marquee name.

But Phillips is perhaps worth consideration, by a team who really struggled at the back last season, especially from set-pieces.

Far too many goals were conceded from dead-ball situations.

Someone like Phillips would potentially be a solution for that particular issue.

The 6ft 3in star is only 24 and has plenty of time to develop.
