Liverpool’s young defender is the target of a promotion team in the Premier League transfer market, Williams steals attention


Liverpool ‘s young defender , Neco Williams , is the target of a promotion team in the English Premier League transfer market . The Reds turned down Nottingham Forest’s offer.

Liverpool of the Premier League have reportedly turned down Neco Williams’ transfer offer Nottingham Forest as the Reds are holding out for a fee of £15m following Fulham’s loan.

Sun Sport has exclusively revealed that newly-promoted team Steve Cooper is approaching the Reds defender and Morgan Gibbs White from Wolves.

A £35 million double action came after they caught Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin for a club record transfer fee of £17.2 million.

However, the Daily Mail reported Thursday (30/6/2022), now claim that Forest will have to fight even harder if they are to land Williams.

The 21-year-old shone on loan at Fulham as he helped them win the Championship and return to the Premier League.

Those displays have caused great interest in the defender with Forest leading the chase. Liverpool are willing to sell their academy graduate after signing Calvin Ramsey from Aberdeen to play as a substitute for Trent Alexander-Arnold. Currently, Liverpool only want to do business if the asking price is met in the transfer market. Forest have made one offer to the Anfield giants, but will have to raise it if they want the Welsh international.

Fulham, Southampton and PSV Eindhoven have also shown interest in the right-back.

But it was Forest who seemed to want him the most as they looked for a replacement for Djed Spence.

He looks set to join Tottenham after progressing on loan at the City Ground from Middlesbrough.

Liverpool are also reportedly considering flirting with the young Real Madrid striker from the Spanish League.

Liverpool are reportedly considering a surprise move for Real Madrid striker Rodrygo as a replacement for Sadio Mane, who has joined Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Mane’s six-year tenure at Anfield ended earlier this month, when the 30-year-old made a £35m transfer to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have secured Fabio Carvalho and Darwin Nunez to counteract the impact of Sadio Mane’s exit.

For Mohamed Salah, his future is still in question, with one year remaining on his Liverpool contract .

As a result, Spanish outlet El Nacional, claim that Klopp has identified Rodrygo as a potential replacement for Mane, and the Brazil international is not 100% happy at the Bernabeu.

Rodrygo was instrumental in Real Madrid’s run to the Champions League trophy last season, coming off the bench to score crucial goals against Chelsea and Manchester City in the knockout stages.

The former Santos starlet recorded nine goals and 10 assists in 49 games for Carlo Ancelotti in all tournaments last season, but he failed to secure a place in the starting XI.

Amid competition from Marco Asensio and Federico Valverde on the right-hand side of attack, Rodrygo started 17 games in La Liga and only came on in the last minute of the Champions League final.

The 21-year-old is said to be dissatisfied with being under Ancelotti, who views him as a player who can make an impact off the bench rather than as a guaranteed starter.

The report adds that Liverpool have informally made a €60m (£51.7m) offer to Real president Florentino Perez.

But Rodrygo prioritizes stardom at Real Madrid, even if Klopp plans to put him in the first team.

But Salah and Luis Diaz certainly remain as Klopp’s first choice for Liverpool attack .

Rodrygo arrived in the Spanish capital for a fee of £40.5m from Santos as an 18-year-old in 2018.

Since then the forward has racked up 18 goals and 21 assists in 108 games for Los Blancos.

The Brazil international with five caps has won the Champions League, two La Liga titles and two Supercopa de Espana crowns with Real Madrid, and he will not become a free agent until 2025.
