Wolves want Neco Williams, according to reports. It’s interest that Liverpool can use to their advantage.
This comes from Goal. They claim Wolves are one of a few Premier League sides interested in Neco Williams.
Williams looks likely to leave Liverpool this summer. He supposedly wants out of the club as he doesn’t see a first-team future – and that’s fair enough.
Having Trent Alexander-Arnold in front of you is a near-impossible position to be in, given the Scouser is still only 22. Williams correctly sees that as a battle he likely won’t win.
Thus he wants out and Liverpool may grant him that wish. A club would have to meet their asking-price however – £10m. Honestly, that could be a bargain and the Reds are being quite generous there.
Williams is a young international player with Premier League and Champions League experience. Those don’t typically go for anything like that price range.
But maybe Liverpool can get more out of this than just money. Maybe they can use Williams to build a relationship with Wolves.
Wolves to sign Neco Williams?
Liverpool did business with Wolves last year, of course. The Reds brought in Diogo Jota from there and sent Ki-Jana Hoever the other way.
It was a nice piece of business where everyone seemed to get what they wanted. And that grows a relationship between two sides – we think it’s one worth nurturing.
Wolves aren’t the only club interested in Williams. Other Premier League sides are, too, but in working with Wolves again, Liverpool could open doors.
After all, there are other players at the club that Liverpool may want in the future. We’ve talked about Pedro Neto before, for instance.
Should the winger be available some day soon, the Reds may want a place at the front of the queue. Sending Williams their way could make that happen.
Especially when the price is so cheap to begin with. Handing Wolves priority is a nice way to make up for the low fee and turn this situation into a win for Liverpool.
It’s worth building a relationship, certainly. Wolves frequently have interesting players coming through their ranks.
Now, we’re not talking about turning them into a feeder club. They’re far too big for that and such an arrangement is impossible. But making sure they’re easy to work with should the right player catch the eye? That’s just sensible.
So if Wolves truly do want Williams, we think Liverpool should make it happen.
