Liam Williams could be coming to the Aviva Premiership
Reigning champions Saracens are leading the chase for the fullback
Harlequins are also interested in the Wales internationals signature
Wales fullback Liam Williams could be heading to the Aviva Premiership, with Saracens leading the chase for the Scarlets star’s signature.
The 25-year-old, dubbed the future of Welsh rugby, has developed into one of the best full-backs in Europe – especially under the high ball – and his fine form ensured Wales did not miss Leigh Halfpenny too much during his recent injury-enforced absence.
Having seen the likes of George North, Taulupe Faletau, Jamie Roberts, Luke Charteris and Rhys Priestland take up big-money offers in England, Williams, whose girlfriend lives in London, is reportedly contemplating doing likewise, with clubs willing to pay £300,000 a year for his services.
Scarlets want Williams to stay, but he is delaying signing a new deal and the suspicion was that rival Welsh region Ospreys were planning a move when his contract runs out next year.
A well-placed source told Wales Online: “Half the Aviva Premiership is interested in Liam Williams. He has a lot of admirers there.”
