Liverpool: Reds linked with Nico Williams signing

Liverpool: Reds linked with Nico Williams signing -Liverpool News

Liverpool are interested in signing young Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams this summer.

The Lowdown: Another winger coming in?

Jurgen Klopp has brought in three new additions in the summer transfer window, with Darwin Nunez, Fabio Carvalho and Calvin Ramsay added to his squad.

There is no official confirmation that the Reds’ spending has stopped there though, and perhaps they are simply on the lookout for a more under-the-radar addition than the highly touted Jude Bellingham.

It could be that another winger is seen as an option – someone who could come in and provide backup to the likes of Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz.

The Latest: Liverpool keen on Williams Jr

According to AS [via Sport Witness], Liverpool have been monitoring Williams ‘from close’ – the 20-year-old is the brother of former Reds target Inaki Williams.

It is claimed that there’s ‘no danger’ of the Reds triggering his €50million (£42.2million) release clause yet, but Bilbao ‘will have a problem’ if he continues to impress.

The Verdict: One for the future

At 20, Williams Jr is still very much a work in progress as a player, possessing a rawness that is outlined by no goals or assists in 23 La Liga appearances last season.

Spending big on him this summer would, therefore, feel like a risk, even though he has been tipped to have a ‘great future’ by former Spain Under-17s boss David Gordo and even likened himself to Kylian Mbappe, saying he dribbles ‘like Neymar‘.

Williams could be one to go back in for next summer then, at a point where he is a year older and more mature as a player.
