Liverpool Transfer News: The Reds want to sign Nico Williams

Liverpool Transfer News: The forward Nico Williams of Athletic Club Bilbao has been said to be on Liverpool’s transfer want list.

According to Fichajes, Liverpool is accelerating its pursuit of the 20-year-old Spanish winger because of their interest in him. Williams is under contract with the Spanish club until the summer of 2024, and if he does not sign an extension soon, Athletic Club Bilbao may feel pressured to sell him.

In the summer of 2024, they won’t want to risk losing one of their most promising young players to a free transfer. Liverpool, meantime, is in dire need of reinforcements and might benefit greatly from the addition of a speedy and goal-scoring teenage winger like Williams. The 20-year-old has scored seven times and assisted on six more in career play.

Due to the lack of quality wingers, Jurgen Klopp has sometimes turned to players like Harvey Elliott and Darwin Nunez in place of Luis Diaz and Mohammed Salah. Liverpool’s team would benefit from adding a specialist, but the club has yet to seal the deal.

Liverpool Transfer News: Will the Reds get Williams?

Working with a world-class coach like Klopp would undoubtedly entice the young attacker to join a club like Liverpool and help him reach his full potential.

After receiving a barrage of abuse from his online followers for his role in Athletic Bilbao’s elimination from the Copa del Rey semifinals, Spain striker Nico Williams deleted his social media accounts.

After a 1-1 tie in extra time on Tuesday at San Mamés Stadium in Bilbao, Athletic was eliminated by Osasuna 2-1 on aggregate. Although Athletic prevailed 1-0 in regulation, Williams missed two golden opportunities to put his club in the driver’s seat.

The 20-year-old striker had a breakaway in the 70th minute and squandered a close-range opportunity with just the goalie to beat, sending the ball high over the crossbar.

The 116th minute saw Osasuna’s late replacement Pablo Ibanez score the game-winning goal with a shot from the outside of the box, sending the Pamplona club back to the final for the first time since 2005.
