The Lowdown: Williams excellent on loan
The Wales international traded the Reds for Fulham in January, joining the Championship side on loan until the end of the season.
He was also hailed a ‘majestic’ by Wales Online after one performance for his country and he will return to Liverpool in the summer.
The Latest: Summer exit predicted
Speaking to Football Insider, Campbell tipped Williams to leave Anfield permanently, however, in order to enjoy regular minutes elsewhere and kick on in his career:
“Neco Williams has been playing at Fulham and doing well. He wants to play now. He wants to start every week now he has a taste of it. Why would he want to come back to Liverpool and sit on the bench? Yes, he has tasted success at Liverpool but he has been more involved at Fulham.
“I think the writing is on the wall here, especially if Liverpool are looking at other right-backs. He will leave because his priority will be to play regularly.
“If Jurgen Klopp is shuffling his pack he might be able to recruit a replacement. The key will be who they recruit. Klopp has the knack of getting the right players.”
The Verdict: Right time to leave
While Williams is clearly a talented young right-back, it does make sense for him to consider leaving Liverpool, considering Trent Alexander-Arnold should be ahead of him for many years to come.
Barring a serious injury to Alexander-Arnold, it is hard to see how the Welshman is going to fit into Jurgen Klopp’s plans and he is too good to be warming the substitutes’ bench every week.
A permanent move to Fulham could be absolutely perfect, especially as they are now in the Premier League, allowing Williams to prove himself at the top level week in, week out.
