Liverpool defender ready to move as Bournemouth target Prem duo
AFC Bournemouth are hoping to secure a loan move for Liverpool defender Neco Williams.
It is understood that the championship team have made a bid for liverpool for Williams to join the club until the end of the season. Bournemouth are hoping to expand their squad before tomorrow’s deadline as they push to return to Premier League football. According to The Daily Star, the Reds are currently considering the offer.
Williams is keen on getting a loan in order to win more first-team action.
The 20-year-old has only made one league appearance so far this campaign and is unlikely to make much more.
Williams also hopes a decision will help him cement his position in the Wales international squad ahead of March’s World Cup qualifiers.
Wales take on Austria on March 24 in a must-see fixture as they vie for a place at Qatar 2022.
However, Williams fears that his lack of football will cause him to lose his place in the team. The winger featured and scored in Wales’ last qualifier against Belarus.
For Bournemouth, the move would add more depth to a position in which they already have a number of young talents.
Ethan Laird and Jack Stacey have been solid players this season for Scott Parker’s side, and the addition of Williams will only add more strength.
The Cherries currently sit third in the Championship table, and are only one point away from an automatic promotion spot.

Parker is also considering a late move for Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.
According to Football Insider, Bournemouth are currently negotiating a loan deal with the Magpies for Woodman’s services.
The 24-year-old has made just four league appearances and is now third-choice at St. James’ Park.
The move is apparently at an advanced stage as Woodman looks set to join Bournemouth until the end of the season.
