Arsenal keeping close tabs with €25m-rated La Liga attacker

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on signing Nico Williams next year. The 20-year-old attacker has a release clause worth €50m. Spain international has been a crucial footballer for Athletic Bilbao this campaign, and he has impressed in La Liga with his displays.

The Spanish attacker has four goals and four assists to his name across all tournaments, and he could prove to be a quality, long-term addition to all three teams. The London giants need to add more depth to their front line, and the Spaniard could be a quality long-term acquisition.


His arrival would allow the Spanish manager to rotate the likes of Martinelli and Saka during the second half of the campaign. However, it seems quite unlikely that Nico will want to move to the PL midway through the campaign.

Williams is a regular starter at the Spanish club and he will not want to jeopardise his chances of regular football by moving to a foreign league in the coming weeks. Nico has a release clause of €50m, and all three PL teams have the finances to pull off the move.

If they decide to trigger his release clause in winter, Athletic Club will be powerless to stop him from leaving. A move to the PL could help the player accelerate his development and he will get to work with world-class coaches like Jurgen Klopp. But Man United and Real Madrid are also keen on signing Nico.
