Liverpool will reportedly take summer income to £67.4m with an imminent sale

Liverpool will reportedly take their summer income to around £67.4m with an upcoming sale. The Reds have been busy in 2022.

Various reports claim that Liverpool will complete the sale of Neco Williams over the next few days. The BBC believes a £17m deal has been agreed with Nottingham Forest.

Williams departing is no surprise, of course. The right-back spent the second half of last season with Fulham, winning the Championship and boosting his profile. There was never going to be a shortage of interest in his signature.

And the idea of Liverpool keeping Williams disappeared with the arrival of Calvin Ramsay. With no room for the Welshman, it seemed obvious that the Reds would cash in.

And cash-in they have. £17m is a sizeable fee for a squad player produced from the academy – and one with relatively little regular experience at the top level.

Williams will be the third major sale this summer, too, as Liverpool continue to bring in cash.

Liverpool grow summer income

Sadio Mané was the first major sale this summer, of course. He joined Bayern Munich for a fee of around £35m, per the BBC. Now, that won’t all be guaranteed but add-ons could take it to that figure.

It’s a similar story with Takumi Minamino. He joined AS Monaco from Liverpool for £15.4m, per Sky Sports. Again, only a portion of that is guaranteed (£12.9m).

That’s £67.4m when combined with the reported figure for Williams. Again, though, that’s only if all add-ons trigger.

The guaranteed figure currently stands at £40.3m (£27.4m for Mané, £12.9m for Minamino) as we don’t know the structure of the Williams deal. Our guess would be at around £15m, though, as that’s the amount Liverpool reportedly asked for.

Anything over £10m makes this a very lucrative summer, though, as Liverpool reshape their squad.
