The Reds’ head coach Brendan Rodgers knows the defender well from their time together at the Liberty stadium, where the Northern Irishman made the player his captain, before departing to Anfield last summer.
And, as part of the agreement that took Rodgers to Merseyside, he promised not to sign any Swansea players for a year, meaning the proposed deal cannot go through until the end of this season.
The Wales international, who is enjoying a wonderful campaign for the high-flying club, only signed a new three-year deal with Swansea in October, meaning the Principality outfit can demand as much as £10 million for the 28-year-old’s services, especially as there are a whole host of other top-flight clubs sniffing around Williams.
However, the player himself has told the South Wales club that he is only interested in teaming up with his former time manager again and that he wishes to pursue his dream move to Anfield this summer, meaning that a deal should go through without any hitches.
