Liverpool demand £12m for Neco Williams amid interest from Fulham

Fulham are reportedly ready to make a move for Neco Williams, with Liverpool valuing the defender at around £12million.

A recent Football Insider report shed some light on Neco Williams’ future. The 21-year-old Liverpool defender enjoyed a brilliant loan spell at Fulham, convincing the London giants to make a permanent move for him in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Liverpool, however, have no intention of letting their defender leave the club on a reduced fee and are holding out for £12million for the right-back’s services. Fulham have already launched their quest to sign the Welshman permanently, but it remains to be seen if they are ready to meet Liverpool’s demands.

A product of Liverpool’s youth academy, Neco Williams joined Fulham on a short-term loan during the January transfer window. He left Anfield in search of regular playing time after playing second fiddle to Trent Alexander-Arnold throughout the first half of the campaign.

Williams didn’t disappoint either, becoming an instant hit under Marco Silva. During his six months at the club, the 21-year-old right-back has become a defensive mainstay, racking up 14 league appearances and being involved in a total of four goals.

The Welsh international’s services were key in helping Fulham win the EFL Championship and secure promotion to the Premier League. Buoyed by his success at Fulham, it appears the defender has asked Liverpool to stay at Craven Cottage and join the London club on a permanent deal.

Instead of continuing to play second fiddle to Alexander-Arnold at Anfield, Neco Williams wants to stay at Fulham and try his luck at becoming a first-team regular in the Premier League. He’s already shown a lot of promise this year, and Marco Silva hopes the youngster can replicate his performances in the top flight.

Although Liverpool are not opposed to offloading him at the end of the season, they are keen to generate significant transfer income from his sale. The Reds, after all, will have to sign a new right-back who can act as an understudy for Alexander-Arnold next season.

Liverpool have targeted Aberdeen youngster Calvin Ramsay, who is set to replace Neco Williams in a deal worth £4m.
