Nottingham Forest set to win the race for Neco Williams with a fee of around £17 million being agreed – report

Neco Williams seems to have had a sale confirmed with several clubs already this summer but it looks as though Nottingham Forest have their man.

As reported by Midlands reporter for The Telegraph, John Percy: ‘#nffc set to sign Neco Williams and Omar Richards, with both deals now agreed. Williams fee nearer to £17m in total and his signing from #lfc is regarded as a huge statement by Forest. Richards will join from Bayern for around €10m’.

This is going to be a good move for the Welshman, who will be handed a Premier League platform ahead of going to the World Cup with Wales this winter.

There is always a risk of joining a newly promoted club that you could end up in the Championship very quickly, that is something that will have to be weighed up by the 21-year-old.

With the fee falling a little short of the perceived £20 million price tag set by ourselves, there will likely be some potential add-ons and/or a sell-on clause involved in this possible deal.

This one certainly isn’t over yet but it looks like we’re close to seeing our No.76 get his move away from Anfield.
