English club eyeing move for Liverpool defensive pair

By | April 3, 2022

Fulham will allegedly move for Liverpool duo Neco Williams and Joe Gomez during this summer’s transfer market if the club are promoted back to the English top-flight.

The team are currently top of the Championship standings, 14 points clear of third-placed Carlos Corberan’s Huddersfield Town, placing the side in a strong position to secure a return to the Premier League.

According to a recent report from The Express, should they earn a promotion, the capital club will attempt to sign the Reds’ central defenders in the upcoming market.

The Welshman moved to Marco Silva’s side on loan two months ago and has been in brilliant form, scoring twice and picking up two assists in nine EFL Championship appearances.

The report states that the Englishman is also a leading target, with the player struggling for action on Merseyside during the 2021-22 season.

Jurgen Klopp’s side reportedly value the centre-half in the region of £23 million, while Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United and West Ham United are also keeping tabs on the situation.

Meantime, AC Milan are allegedly in discussions with Liverpool star Divock Origi over a transfer to San Siro at the end of the 2021-22 season.

According to Calciomercato, I Rossoneri are desperate to land the Belgium international for nothing.

He has scored 40 goals and grabbed 17 assists in 171 appearances for his side in all competitions since sealing the move from Lille.
