Nottingham Forest look very close to completing the signing of Wales international and Liverpool full-back Neco Williams.
Percy also claims that Liverpool will receive a fee close to £17 million for the 21-year-old full-back.
David Lynch has also confirmed that the Welshman is now free to undergo a medical and sign a contract in order to finalise a move.
Despite a fee being agreed between Nottingham Forest and Liverpool, personal terms between Williams and the newly promoted Premier League club are still to be finalised, according to Goal's Neil Jones.
🚨 BREAKING: Nottingham Forest are set to sign Neco Williams and Omar Richards, with both deals now agreed. Williams' fee is nearer to £17m in total and his signing is regarded as a huge statement by Forest. #lfc [john percy - telegraph]
Anfield Watch Verdict
I have no doubt that Williams is going to become a very competent Premier League full-back with Nottingham Forest.
Unfortunately for the Wales international, he has a top right-back ahead of him in Alexander-Arnold.
The move also makes sense for both sides. Williams wants as much game time as possible before the 2022 Qatar World Cup and with Forest, he will play a lot more football.
For Liverpool, we will receive £17 million for a squad player who wasn't making an impression on the first-team.
We have also signed a new right-back this summer who is more in the mould of Alexander-Arnold than Williams is.
Liverpool fans will definitely be keeping an eye on Williams' future career as he has always been respectful to the club and as I said before, he possesses potential.
Hopefully he doesn't try too hard against us when we face Nottingham Forest next season!
