Neco Williams is apparently being pursued by a number of Premier League clubs, including Burnley and Norwich City.
According to TEAMtalk, Liverpool teenager Neco Williams is in high demand moving into the summer transfer season, with several clubs inquiring about a possible loan deal for the defender.
Williams, a product of Liverpool’s youth system, has been with the club since he was eight years old, when he signed as a youngster. The right-back has progressively advanced through the ranks at the club, earning his first-team debut against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup in 2019. Since then, the 20-year-old has made 25 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s team, scoring three goals and providing three assists.
Williams is highly regarded by Liverpool fans and Klopp, but the kid had to be removed from the firing line after a string of poor displays, including the Reds’ 7-2 loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League last season. As a result, he only made 14 appearances in the campaign.
As a result, Liverpool is weighing loaning him out in the summer to enable the kid obtain more regular playing time and continue his development. This development appears to have a number of clubs involved, including freshly promoted Norwich City. The Canaries have returned to the Premier League after a year in the Championship, but they are facing the possibility of losing several of its key players this summer.
Arsenal has made repeated approaches for Emiliano Buendia, while right-back Max Aarons has been on the radar of a number of elite teams, including Arsenal and Manchester United. If they lose the young defender this summer, Norwich are looking to replace him with Williams on a season-long loan deal.
With Phil Bardsley’s contract expiring at the end of the month, Burnley are also interested in signing Williams on a temporary basis this summer.
Swansea City, Cardiff City, Stoke City, and Barnsley have all inquired about a possible loan swap for the Welshman, in addition to these two clubs. Williams appears to be on his way out of Anfield next season, with Liverpool open to a temporary leave. It remains to be seen where it will be.
