Nottingham Forest and Fulham both interested in Neco Williams


Nottingham Forest and Fulham both want to sign Liverpool defender Neco Williams… with the Reds slapping 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
  • Nottingham Forest and Fulham are among the clubs showing an interest in him
  • Liverpool value Williams at £15m after his impressive loan spell at Fulham
  • The Reds recently signed another full-back in the shape of Calvin Ramsay 

Liverpool’s £15m rated full-back defender 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 gain promotion to the Premier League.

Williams has since returned to Anfield, but his chances of getting more game time have been dented by the Reds bringing in Calvin Ramsay from Aberdeen.

The Scottish teenager now looks set to provide back-up for Trent Alexander-Arnold moving forward, which could open the door for Williams to leave permanently.

A return to Fulham could be on the cards, while Forest are keen to entice him to the City Ground, potentially as a replacement for Djed Spence, who flourished on loan from Middlesbrough last term. 

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 ensured that Steve Cooper’s team made it to Wembley, and they went on to beat Huddersfield in the final.

Sportsmail recently revealed that the East Midlands club offered the goalkeeper a new deal that would have seen him double his current salary.

However, he opted to turn them down as he wants to move back 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 would appear that they are prepared 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 in between the sticks.
