‘Let’s Go! Bring On Next Season Already!!’ ‘Yes, Yes, Yes Please’ Fans Excited As Arsenal Target Spanish Wonderkid

Arsenal are keeping tabs on Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams, according to The Mirror.

The Gunners are said to be keen on strengthening their options out wide in order to provide support for Bukayo Saka, and they have identified the Spanish international as an option along with Wolves’ Pedro Neto.

Supporters on excited by the prospect of Williams making the move to the Emirates this summer:

What is Williams’ asking price?

The 21-year-old signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at the start of December, keeping him at Athletic until the summer of 2027.

However, the deal reportedly includes a release clause that would allow Williams to leave the La Liga side for only €50m (Β£43m), which would make the player a very attractive target. He would probably be cheaper than an alternative like Neto.

Will Arsenal have competition for the player?

The Mirror claim that Liverpool, Aston Villa, Real Madrid have also been scouting the Spaniard in recent months so Mikel Arteta’s side are unlikely to be the only team looking to sign him.

From the looks of things, though, Williams is someone that the Gunners are seriously contemplating making an offer for next summer.
