Arsenal Monitoring Athletic Bilbao's Nico Williams For Potential Summer Transfer

Arsenal is reportedly eyeing Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams as part of their summer transfer plans, aiming to bolster their attacking options for the upcoming 2024-25 campaign. According to reports from the Mirror, Arsenal scouts are closely monitoring the 21-year-old Spanish talent, who signed a new contract with Athletic Bilbao last year, indicating that he may not come cheap.

However, the Gunners face stiff competition from clubs like Real Madrid, Aston Villa, and Liverpool for Williams’ signature. Williams has showcased his talent with five goals and ten assists in 24 appearances across all competitions this season, earning him a reputation as one of La Liga’s most promising young players. Interestingly, Williams’ brother, Inaki Williams, was previously linked with a move to Arsenal in 2016 but ultimately remained with Athletic Bilbao.

Alongside Williams, Arsenal is also interested in Pedro Neto, Ivan Toney, and Martin Zubimendi as potential summer targets. To facilitate these moves, Arsenal may need to offload players like Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, and Eddie Nketiah to generate funds.

Here is the highlight video of Nico William’s skills and goals.
