Nico Williams has emerged as a top target for Arsenal, who are looking for competition for Bukayo Saka on the wing. Media shares that Mikel Arteta hopes to sign the Athletic Bilbao star in the summer. The Gunners are even willing to get rid of a few current attackers to make the deal come true.
There are many clubs interested in this 21-year-old player, including Real Madrid, Liverpool and Aston Villa. In addition, Chelsea also began to take action to gain control over Arsenal. Specifically, Fabrizio Romano revealed that Williams has been on the Blues’ shortlist since last summer and the team is still sending scouts to monitor the Spanish star.
On CaughtOffside, Romano shared:
“Arsenal also sent their scouts to watch Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams several times. It was the same with Chelsea when they brought him into the squad last summer”.
“The race for Williams’ signature is completely open and so far nothing has progressed with either club.”
