Neco Williams set to push for Liverpool transfer exit after Euro 2020 with Leeds and Aston Villa fighting for £10m ace

LIVERPOOL defender Neco Williams will reportedly push for move away after Euro 2020 with four Premier League sides keen.

The 20-year-old, who is currently on international duty with Wales, is looking to play regular first-time football after limited chances at Anfield.

Since making his debut in October 2019, the right-back has featured in just 25 games for the Reds in all competitions.

In the 2020-21 campaign he was restricted to just six top-flight outings after playing second fiddle to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

And according to The Athletic, Williams will look to depart Merseyside later this summer.

Liverpool would reluctantly part ways with their academy graduate, though they will only sell him for a fee of at least £10million.

It has been stated that Premier League quartet Leeds, Aston Villa, Burnley and Southampton have all expressed their admiration for the youngster within the past year.

A move to Villa Park seems unlikely due to Ashley Young's arrival at the club, but it remains to be seen if the three other clubs will turn their interest into a formal offer.

The news outlet also claims that Liverpool will not look to bring in a replacement for Williams should he leave, as Joe Gomez can provide cover for Alexander-Arnold.

And Jurgen Klopp is said to be impressed by the development of academy star Conor Bradley, who joined the club in 2019 from Northern Ireland's Dungannon United.


Williams, who is tied down at Anfield until 2025, has featured twice for Wales at Euro 2020.

After being an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw against Switzerland, he came off the bench in the 2-0 win over Turkey.

And he lasted 86 minutes against Italy on Sunday during the 1-0 defeat before being replaced by Tottenham's Ben Davies.
