Liverpool have yet to kick off the Arne Slot era with a summer transfer, whilst Chelsea have already been making a number of plays in the window.

The Blues have particularly impressed with the addition of Brazilian wonderkid Estevao Willian. Fabrizio Romano confirms on X (formerly Twitter) that the teenager has signed a deal taking him to Stamford Bridge in July 2025.

Enzo Maresca’s men did miss out on Michael Olise, with the highly talented Crystal Palace star opting for a move to Germany with Vincent Kompany’s Bayern Munich.

There’s been plenty of speculation around the future of Spain’s Nico Williams.

Fabrizio Romano now clarifies in CaughtOffside’s Daily Briefing, however, that the 21-year-old is not yet involved in advanced negotiations with any outfit.

The good (or bad, depending on your point of view) news is that the Athletic Bilbao winger has a release clause worth €58m [£49m].

We won’t get a clear view on his next move in football until after the European Championship.

Nonetheless, Williams is absolutely a player, in our opinion, Liverpool should be eyeing up.
