Mercato: Liverpool will get 20 million euros with his departure

Liverpool are very active at the beginning of the transfer window. Jurgen Klopp’s squad already has several arrivals, but also departures, including one yet to come. more

existing agreement

The promoted Nottingham Forest is certainly very adventurous. Determined to perpetuate his position in the elite, he ties the club to the Clubs Cup of Champions among recruits. After Taiwo Awoniyi (Union Berlin), Giulian Biancone (Troyes), Dean Henderson (Manchester United) or even Moses Nyakate (Mainz), it’s Neco Williams’ turn to court. Seduces a promising young Welshman in the Midlands. Launched during the 2019-2020 season, it raised expectations.

It was quickly secured at the time, and is currently under contract until 2025. Hence, a 3-year contract must be purchased for Nottingham. However, the Greek owners of the forests had the resources, let it be known. Unaffected by Liverpool’s demands, they are willing to pay £17m, or around €20m. Between the Reds, we agree very well, because the two clubs have already agreed on this price. All that remains is to impress the player.

Nico Williams, promise prevented by competition

Born in Wrexham, Wales in 2001, Williams came to Liverpool at the age of six. Having been drawn early, he will stay on the banks of the Mersey to climb different age groups one by one. He was often outdone, cross paths with Steven Gerrard, the then youth coach. Nicknamed the teenager, the Liverpool legend makes him take a starting point for the first team. From 2019 to 2022, the defender participated in a total of 31 matches, some of which were in the Champions League. A turning point came on January 31, 2022. On the last day of the winter transfer window, he was sent on loan to Fulham, in the Championship. There, the hard block explodes by participating in 15 matches.

Returning to Liverpool having made so much progress, it is still difficult. Indeed, the Welshman could have come forward for a bright future at his coaching club, but he had the misfortune to fall behind Trent Alexander-Arnold by only a few years. Already in the Liverpool legend, having won it all at 23, the right-sided position appears promising for the latter, and for many years to come. In this context, the future is necessarily written elsewhere. In a smaller workforce, Williams could fully take his chance, as he already does at selection.

Good seller Liverpool

Of course, more often than not, we tend to refer to arrivals rather than departures. If Liverpool break the piggy bank for Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsey, they will also be rescued quickly. One year after his contract expired, Sadio Mane was sold to Bayern for €32 million. An interesting amount, it can be about 40 thanks to various items. Takumi Minamino followed by taking over the management of Monaco, here we are talking about 15 million plus 3 bonuses. Finally, except for the status change, he has yet to arrive at an additional 20 million. Klopp manages his budget well.
