Fulham want Gomez and Williams
Football Transfer Centre

Fulham will look to sign Liverpool duo Joe Gomez and Neco Williams on a permanent basis this summer.

The Cottagers are currently top of the Championship table with 77 points, 14 ahead of third-placed Huddersfield Town.

They are on course for automatic promotion in the coming weeks. There is bound to be plenty of investment thereafter.

A new centre-back is one of the club's top priorities, and The Mirror claims that they may look into a deal for Gomez.

Fulham have a good working relationship with the Reds. They signed Williams on a temporary basis in January.

The Cottagers also agreed to sell Fabio Carvalho to the Reds in the same window, but a deal did not materialise in time.

Carvalho's deal expires this summer, but reports claim that the clubs will negotiate a fee rather than organising a tribunal.

Meanwhile, Gomez has been out-of-favour with the Reds with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate preferred over him.

Aston Villa and Newcastle United failed to sign him in January, but he could be permitted to head for the exit door this summer.

The Cottagers are hopeful of signing the England international while also turning Williams' loan deal into a permanent one.
