Below, we take a deeper look about the player in a scout report and conclude why clubs are tracking him with interest:
Scout Report – Randell Williams
Randell Williams is a versatile winger who can play as a striker or as a wide midfielder, if required to do so. He prefers to play on the right, but is equally effective on the other side as well.
If we look at his attributes, the 22-year-old possesses good pace to burn in wide areas. He is a technically strong player with good dribbling skills, effective crossing and passing and not bad when it comes to shooting from in and around the goal.
The weaknesses to his game are lack of physicality and the ability to switch off when the opposition has the ball. These things can be worked upon and improved in due course of time as he is still young enough to learn a lot of things.
Having been at the youth setup of some of the established Premier League clubs, Williams do come from a background where he knows what needs to be done to reach the highest level.
- Nottingham Forest shouldn’t waste any time in securing this prodigious 18-year-old star’s future – Agreed?
- Nottingham Forest would solve goalscoring woes by recalling this agile 22-year-old academy star from loan
- Nottingham Forest would be very wise to build their attack around their 31-year-old speedster and here’s why
So, we can conclude by saying that Randell Williams is a quality young player who has the scope to improve further and become a star in the future. The Championship clubs are right in tracking him.
