Liverpool are open to letting Neco Williams leave Anfield for around £10 million with Premier League rivals Aston Villa, Leeds United and Southampton all potential destinations, as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
Wales deserve every ounce of credit after finishing above Switzerland and a hotly-tipped Turkish side to secure an automatic place in the knockout stages of Euro 2020.
But, when you consider that so many members of Robert Page’s squad did not play regular, first-team football at club level last term, that achievement looks even more impressive.
Williams, like Ben Davies, Ethan Ampadu, Joe Rodon and more, spent much of 2020/21 watching from the sidelines.
The 20-year-old full-back was handed just three Premier League starts by Jurgen Klopp and, with Trent Alexander-Arnold back on form, there is a growing acceptance that Williams may need to leave the club he joined over a decade ago to fulfil his potential.
Will Neco Williams really leave Liverpool?
The Echo reports that Aston Villa, Leeds and Southampton have all expressed an interest.
According to TEAMtalk, Williams also has admirers at Burnley, Norwich City and a handful of Championship clubs.
Although Klopp has spoken in glowing terms about a man who made his breakthrough in the second half of 2019/20, it is understood that Liverpool will not stand in his way should offers of around £10 million arrive between now and the August 31 transfer deadline.
The Merseyside giants believe that Williams will ask to leave once he returns from the European Championships.
Two-footed and versatile, the Wrexham-born defender would tick a lot of boxes for a Southampton side looking for a full-back capable of filling in on either flank.
The return of Ashley Young may see Aston Villa drop out of the race, however.
