Liverpool are reportedly monitoring Athletic Bilbao attacking-midfielder Inaki Williams amid interest from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

The 21-year-old has represented Spain’s under-21 side and has scored ten goals this season, provoking interest from across the continent.

According to The Guardian, Williams has a release clause of €20m in his contract with the Spanish club. The Gunners and north London rivals Tottenham have sent scouts to watch the exciting forward while Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is said to have been a long-term admirer.

Atletico and Real Madrid are also interested, according to the report, but Liverpool are reportedly confident of luring him to the Premier League.

Bilbao want him to sign a new contract with a much greater release clause but Williams has so far resisted their efforts.
