Josh Williams has been speaking on the latest instalment of the Blood Red podcast, where he assessed Liverpool transfer target Eduardo Camavinga. 

Jurgen Klopp’s side have been linked with a move for the Rennes midfielder ahead of the upcoming , but they’re expected to face stiff competition from some of the continent’s top teams.

The 18-year-old has impressed for his boyhood since making his first-team debut back in 2019, racking up 77 appearances in all competitions despite his tender years.

Camavinga is set to enter the final 12 months of his contract at the Roazhon Park over the summer, increasing the speculation surrounding his future, and Williams believes the France international would prove to be a success if he signed for the reigning Premier League .

He said: (26:16) “I think Liverpool’s recruitments is just all about value, really, you know, exploiting little inefficiencies really in the market. And if you’ve got an 18-year-old player there with a really high ceiling, but with a limited contract, you know, if he’s definitely not signing, his club will certainly want to get rid of him because otherwise next summer he can pretty much leave for free.

“So, that’s the kind of thing Liverpool tend to exploit. And if that can happen, and you can get him for less than his true worth, for me he is certainly capable of being a bit of a Wijnaldum, you know, heir to the throne type thing, you know, with the potential to be better than Wijnaldum.

“But he’s a little bit different to certain areas. He’s left-footed well, which is nice. But yeah, this is the type of thing that Liverpool can exploit even though he’s younger. This is one that would make a bit of sense.”

TIF Thoughts on Camavinga…

The teenager has impressed during the early stages of his career and already has a good amount of experience having played Champions League and international football.

With Gini Wijnaldum reportedly close to a summer exit, Camavinga could be the ideal replacement and ignite a Liverpool revival after a disappointing campaign this time around.
