Arsenal and Liverpool Eyeing Spain’s Rising Star Nico Williams Despite Transfer Challenges



Arsenal and Liverpool remain in contention to sign Spain winger Nico Williams, though they recognize the potential complications involved in securing the deal.

Williams has been exceptional for Spain at Euro 2024 following a stellar season with Athletic Bilbao, where he scored eight goals and provided 19 assists in 37 appearances during the 2023/24 campaign.

While he has yet to contribute a goal at the European Championship, his performance has been pivotal in Spain’s impressive run.

The 21-year-old winger, linked with Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool, has an attractive release clause in his contract, believed to be around £45 million.

Despite this, signing Williams would be costly due to his wage demands and associated taxes. Chelsea has reportedly stepped back from pursuing him this summer because of these financial factors.

Arsenal, however, is still exploring options to enhance their attacking lineup under Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal’s Admiration for Williams

Transfer expert Ben Jacobs highlights the complexities surrounding a potential deal for Williams, noting that any transfer would involve significant taxes and the player’s wage expectations of over £200k per week.

In his CaughtOffside column, Jacobs confirms Chelsea’s withdrawal from the race but indicates that Arsenal and Liverpool remain interested.


Barcelona also admires Williams but is hesitant due to the overall cost. The player is reportedly very open to a move to the Catalan club.

Arsenal expert Charles Watts also notes that the Gunners are admirers of Williams, though they face stiff competition for his signature.

As Arsenal looks to strengthen their squad for the upcoming Premier League season, securing Williams could be a strategic move to bolster their attacking options.
