He impressed for Marco Silva’s title-winning side but returned to Liverpool at the end of his spell.

According to The Independent, a fee has now been reached to bring Williams to Nottingham Forest.

And he will become a Forest player providing he agrees personal terms.

He is set to replace right-back Djed Spence who returned to Middlesbrough after his thoroughly impressive loan spell last season.

He now looks set for a transfer to Tottenham in the coming weeks – off the back of his stellar performances for Forest.

Meanwhile, Williams, who already has 21 caps at international level for Wales, would be Cooper’s fifth signing of the summer.

The Tricky Trees returned to the top flight for the first time in 23 years after winning the Championship play-offs last season.

And they are not messing around in the transfer window.

Cooper’s men have already broken their record fee to bring in Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin for £17m.

They have also signed Giulian Biancone and Moussa Niakhate, while Manchester United keeper Dean Henderson has come in on loan.

Bayern Munich’s Omar Richards and Huddersfield’s Harry Toffolo are also being linked with a move to the City Ground as Cooper eyes up a new left-back.

Williams is set to be Liverpool’s fourth departure of the summer following Sadio Mane, Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi.

Jurgen Klopp has replaced those players by bringing in Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, Fulham playmaker Fabio Carvalho and Aberdeen teenager Calvin Ramsay.
