Liverpool Defender Undergoing Medical Ahead Of £16 Million Transfer

Neco Williams is set to undergo his medical at Nottingham Forest after a bid worth up to £16 million was accepted by Liverpool.

Williams has been linked with a host of clubs this summer, after impressing in the second half of last season at Fulham as the Cottagers gained promotion back to the Premier League. 

The likes of Southampton, PSV Eindhoven and Fulham were all said to be interested in signing the Welshman, but it now appears that Forest have won the race.

Liverpool were said to be demanding £16 million upfront for the right-back and have now accepted an offer in that region from the newly promoted side. 

Williams will now travel to Nottingham and undergo his medical, with the deal expected to be completed by the end of the weekend at the latest, according to Football Insider

Forest are also said to be working on the signing of Omar Richards from Bayern Munich as they look to bolster the left side of their defence.

Earlier this week, Football Insider revealed that Forest had agreed personal terms with Williams but Liverpool’s £20 million valuation represented a major stumbling block preventing a deal. 

The Reds are understood to have accepted slightly below their valuation which now sees the Wales international on the verge of his move. 

Williams became surplus to requirements at Anfield after Jürgen Klopp added Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen to his squad earlier this summer.

The Scotsman will provide cover and competition to first choice Trent Alexander-Arnold, a role previously occupied by Williams.

The Wrexham-born man made 33 appearances for the Merseyside club, after making his debut in October 2019. 

The 21-year-old will be eager to receive regular first team minutes as he looks to cement his place in Rob Page’s Wales squad for the upcoming World Cup this winter.

This was perhaps a driving factor in his move to Forest, where he will likely be an undisputed starter.
