Liverpool are set to recall Rhys Williams from his loan spell with Swansea City.
Goal says Liverpool have made the decision as Nat Phillips is likely to leave Anfield this month.
Watford failed with a loan bid for Phillips which included an obligation to buy.
But the Reds would prefer a straight sale this month and have asked for £15m.
Williams, 20, has made only seven appearances in all competitions for Swansea this season.
