Anfield club look at Williams to replace retiring Carragher
Liverpool are looking at Swansea captain Ashley Williams to replace the retiring Jamie Carragher at the end of the season.
Williams, 28, played under current Reds manager Brendan Rodgers at Swansea last season and his impressive form has continued under Michael Laudrup this season.
35-year-old Carragher is hanging his boots up in the summer after a serving his side so well over the years and Rodgers feels Williams can be the man to step into his shoes.
Liverpool have been suspect in the back during recent weeks and Rodgers wants to redress this problem by recruiting the Welshman.
Daniel Agger has been struggling for form and fitness in recent weeks and The Northern Irish manager explained how it is a juggling act with the Dane, telling the Daily Post: “We’ve had to manage Daniel all the way through the season.”
With Champions League football seeming unattainable for next season it is now the time for the Liverpool manager to look to the future, adding: “Being a realist, it’s going to be very, very difficult,
“You never lose your optimism and I’m always optimistic but it’s going to be a huge task.”
Part of that future could well be the Welsh International Williams.
