Leeds may sign Neco Williams for 'a lot of money' after reported update - Campbell

Kevin Campbell has backed Liverpool to cash in on Neco Williams this summer amid interest from Leeds United.

However, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Gunners and Everton striker claimed £10million would be “a lot of money” to pay for a 20-year-old who has just 25 senior club appearances to his name.

According to Goal‘s Neil Jones (21 June), the Reds are willing to sell Williams for a fee of at least £10million this summer.

Leeds, Wolves and Southampton are said to have enquired about the right-back, with the latter at the front of the queue for his signature.

Williams has four years remaining on his contract at Anfield.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his thoughts on Leeds potentially signing Williams, Campbell said:

“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.”
