Liverpool eyeing up summer move for 21-year-old La Liga utility man

Posted by

Liverpool are always on the lookout for players who can help bolster their squad and according to a report from The Mirror, the Merseyside club have their sights set on Nico Williams.

They will look to make a move for him during the summer transfer window.

Williams joined Athletic Club Bilbao back in the summer of 2013 as a youth player. He has since gone up the ranks at the club and has managed to establish himself as one of their mainstays. In the ongoing season, the 21-year-old has 15 goal contributions in his 24 outings.

Williams is capable of operating on either flank and as an attacking midfielder.

His impressive rise and exceptional performances have resulted in a lot of interest from across Europe. Bilbao are aware of the interest in their star prospect and they recently secured their investment by tying him down to a new long-term deal.

Williams’ new contract runs until the summer of 2027 and a potential deal for the Spanish international will not be cheap for any of the interested clubs. Liverpool will have to trigger his €50 million release clause in order to sign the player.

Liverpool are one of the clubs interested in having him in their ranks. The Reds feel he has huge potential and his ability to feature across the front three makes him an attractive prospect.

While the Merseyside club are quite keen on his signature, they won’t find it easy to get a deal done as they will have to compete with the likes of Real Madrid and Arsenal for him.
