Liverpool are set to miss out on silverware this season, just a year after they reached three finals and finished second in the Premier League. 

Last term, Jurgen Klopp’s side lifted both the FA Cup and Carabao Cup and were beaten in the Champions League final by Real Madrid, as well as finishing just a point behind Premier League champions Manchester City.

This season has been very different so far, though, with The Reds having been eliminated from all three cup competitions, although they did win the Community Shield at the start of the campaign.

Following what has already been a disappointing season, this summer will likely see several changes in personnel at Anfield.

The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita are set to depart the club, while several names from across Europe continue to be linked with a move to Merseyside.

Now, it appears that the club are also prepared to sell one of their defenders.

As per Football Insider, centre-back Rhys Williams will be allowed to leave the club when the transfer window reopens.

Williams’ time at Anfield looks to be coming to an end

The 22-year-old spent the first half of this season on loan at Championship strugglers Blackpool, but returned to his parent club in January.

He made 17 appearances for The Tangerines, but hasn’t featured for The Reds since returning to Merseyside.

The report claims that Williams isn’t part of Klopp’s plans for next season and will therefore be sold if a suitable offer is made, and the player is said to be the subject of interest from other second-tier sides.

Williams’ current contract with Liverpool is set to run until 2026, which could help the club to demand a significant fee for the player.

The defender, a product of The Reds’ youth system, made his debut in 2020 and became a regular for Klopp’s side during the 2020/21 campaign, with senior defenders Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk both suffering serious injuries.

Despite making 19 appearances that season, the ex-England under-21 international hasn’t featured for Liverpool since 2021.
