Liverpool completed most of their transfer business early into the window with three signings secured ahead of their return to action next month, but now an update has emerged on another potential move this summer.
According to 90min, Liverpool are plotting a move for Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams.
As per the report, the Reds are keeping tabs on the young player, but they will need to convince the La Liga club with a tempting offer as a move is unlikely this summer.
With Sadio Mane, Divock Origi and Taki Minamino making a move away from Merseyside this summer, it would certainly do Liverpool no harm in strengthening their forward line even further, and Williams could be a great prospect for the future of the team.
The young Spaniard has become a key player in the team at Bilbao and put in some impressive performances for his side scoring three goals in all competitions over last season.
Over 34 La Liga appearances, Williams created one big chance, taking one shot, winning 2.9 duels and completing 1.3 successful dribbles on average per game, proving that he is starting to show his potential and talent which could be further developed under Jurgen Klopp’s watchful eye.
“He has very good football conditions and then he is daring.
“I think he has more things, but he can always have more and that is what he has to have, a lot of ambition.
“If he continues in this dynamic, he will also have more opportunities.”
Indeed, Williams predominantly plays in the right-winger position which means he wouldn’t be a guaranteed starter at Anfield as Mohamed Salah has extended his contract to 2025, nevertheless, the opportunity to train with and learn from one of the best forwards in the world right now could be a tempting opportunity for the young talent.
With that being said, there is no doubt that the signing of Williams would be a great opportunity to strengthen their squad and to put some plans into place for the future, however, it would depend on the player’s expectation on game-time as he would for the moment fall down the pecking order at Liverpool.
