Leeds United are being linked with a move for Liverpool defender Neco Williams with the Wales international expected to leave Anfield this summer.

Williams, who is currently on Wales duty at Euro 2020, has been limited to playing a backup role to Trent Alexander-Arnold at Liverpool in the last two seasons.

The 20-year-old is therefore believed to be keen on a move away from the Reds to secure first-team football in the Premier League according to a report from Birmingham Mail.

As well as Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Southampton are believed to be keen on the right-back this summer.

Former Premier League striker Kevin Campbell thinks Williams would be a smart signing for the Whites but has questioned Liverpool’s reported £10million asking price.

This is What Campbell told Football Insider:

“I think he would be a good addition to that Leeds squad but he has not played a lot of games when you think about it,”

“I know he is a Wales international but £10million is a lot of money for a player who has barely played for his club, especially in the pandemic.”

“Liverpool do not want to give the young man any false hope. He is ready to play week in, week out and Liverpool have two of the best full-backs in the league so you cannot see how he would get an opportunity really.

“To be honest, I think it’s time for him to leave and Liverpool to cash in.”
