Liverpool transfer news: Neco Williams and Nat Phillips could leave Anfield this transfer window | Football news
Liverpool could allow defenders Neco Williams and Nat Phillips to leave the club in the January transfer window.
Williams has only appeared six games for Liverpool this season, with his only Premier League appearance being an 83rd-minute substitute in the 5-0 win at Watford in October.
The 20-year-old is keenly aware of his place in the Wales squad ahead of the March World Cup play-off semi-final against Austria and therefore would like Liverpool to consider a decision for him this month here to improve his playing time.
However, the Reds will not be rushed into any deal and, while sympathetic to Williams’ request, would only let the Welshman go if the right offer is made.
It is also too early to see if a possible move would be a loan or a permanent arrangement.
Williams can cover a number of positions on both flanks in various systems and is very likely to attract interest in this window.
Williams’ downfall in Liverpool’s pecking order comes after manager Jurgen Klopp and assistant Pep Lijnders were impressed with the progress of defenders Conor Bradley and Owen Beck.
James Milner and Joe Gomez are also capable of covering both full-back positions, but any decision to allow Williams to leave would be assessed closer to the transfer deadline.
Phillips sparks Serie A interest
Meanwhile, Phillips is garnering a lot of interest this month, with Serie A clubs reaching out to Liverpool about his availability.
The center-back fractured his cheekbone in last month’s Champions League win at AC Milan, but the 24-year-old has now returned to non-contact training and is expected to be in good shape in the next few months. weeks.
Phillips said Sky Sports News in December he is set to leave Liverpool in January – if Anfield club receive an acceptable offer, estimated at around £ 15million.
Liverpool have already rejected a £ 7million offer from an anonymous Premier League side.
Liverpool are in no rush to sell Phillips, who made 17 league appearances for the Reds last season, after signing a new deal in August that keeps him at Anfield until 2025.
