Leeds reportedly eye Liverpool defender, Aston Villa also interested

Neco Williams will leave Liverpool for a figure in the region of £10million this summer, according to The Athletic. Reports claim numerous Premier League clubs have shown interest in Wales international Williams, with Leeds United and Aston Villa named in eyeing the Liverpool star.

Williams, 20, was excellent on Sunday afternoon as Wales halted Italy to just a 1-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico. That is, despite Ethan Ampadu being sent off for a foul on Federico Bernardeschi. In what was his 13th cap for Wales, Williams impressed for 86 minutes before going off.

Leeds keen on Liverpool defender Williams, who else wants him?

At club level, Williams has broken into the Liverpool side and is now a permanent fixture as cover for Trent Alexander-Arnold. He is also more than capable of playing at left-back, as he showed with Wales over the weekend. He now has 25 senior outings for Liverpool.

Leeds need a right-back to cover Luke Ayling, but even more so, they need a left-back. Gjanni Alioski remains out of contract from June 30 onwards. Other players said to be eyed by Leeds include Huesca’s Javi Galan.

The Athletic state that Williams will go if offers of £10million come in for the right-back. Southampton and Burnley are also potential suitors alongside Leeds and Villa as clubs that have shown interest in the defender over the last 12 months. He has a contract at Liverpool until the summer of 2025.
