Nottingham Forest and Fulham interested in Neco Williams
Nottingham Forest and Fulham both want to sign Liverpool defender Neco Williams… with the Reds hitting a £15million price tag on the full-back after signing Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen
- Neco Williams is wanted by a number of clubs in England and abroad

- The Reds recently signed another full-back in Calvin Ramsay
Liverpool’s £15million-rated full-back Neco Williams is a target for Nottingham Forest, but Fulham, Southampton and PSV Eindhoven have also made offers.
The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Fulham and delivered a number of impressive performances to help the Cottagers promote to the Premier League.
Williams has since returned to Anfield but his chances of getting more playing time have been reduced by the Reds bringing in Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen.

The Scottish teenager now looks set to provide Trent Alexander-Arnold a backup moving forward which could open the door for Williams to leave for good.
A return to Fulham could be on the cards, while Forest are keen to lure him to the City Ground, potentially as a replacement for Djed Spence, who thrived on loan from Middlesbrough last season.
Meanwhile, Forest remain in talks with Lens to sell Brice Samba.
Samba’s heroics in last season’s play-off semi-final against Sheffield United took Steve Cooper’s side to Wembley, and they went on to beat Huddersfield in the final.

Sportsmail recently revealed that the East Midlands club have offered the keeper a new contract which would see him double his current salary.
However, he chose to turn them down as he wants to return to his homeland after spending the last three years at Forest.
Samba is about to enter the final year of his contract at Forest, and it looks like they are ready to let him go this summer to avoid losing him for nothing in 2023.
The newly promoted club have already lined up Manchester United’s Dean Henderson as Samba’s successor between the sticks.
