Williams has been Trent Alexander-Arnold’s second fiddle since he joined the first-team setup, so he might be looking for a permanent move for more regular playing time.

The 20-year-old managed just six Premier League appearances last term and 14 in all competitions for the Reds.

He made his senior debut in October 2019 in the EFL Cup against Arsenal having progressed through the Academy.

Liverpool turned down a loan offer for Southampton’s Williams in January, and players like Leeds United, Aston Villa, and Burnley are reportedly interested in the defender.

Interest is likely to rise in the summer transfer window, and Echo understands Liverpool are open to selling the Welshman.

It is also said that the Reds will not get in the way of Williams if he wants to remain while seeking first-team football on his agenda.

The issue should be resolved after Wales completes its Euro 2020 campaign.

Williams started for Rob Page’s team in their 1-0 loss to Italy last night.
Despite the defeat, Wales advanced to the knockout phase of the competition on goal difference.

Williams and co will head to Amsterdam to play the runners-up of Group B, most likely Denmark, Finland, or Russia
