Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to sign Nico Williams in the summer transfer window, with the 21-year-old one of the names on their wishlist for a new attacker at the end of the season.
Spurs put a lot of teams to shame with their work in the January transfer window, bringing in Timo Werner and Radu Dragusin. But Ange Postecoglou‘s side remain a work in progress. And it appears that they will look to strengthen further in the summer.
Tottenham monitoring Nico Williams ahead of the summer
Aston Villa are showing the most interest from the Premier League in the youngster. Unai Emery has not been afraid to utilise his knowledge of La Liga to help with recruitment.
Jones notes that Williams is seriously considering leaving Athletic in the summer. His contract includes a £43 million release clause.
A seriously exciting target
Williams has had an amazing season to date. He has scored five goals and contributed 10 assists across La Liga and the Copa del Rey. No-one has provided more assists in the Spanish top-flight this season.
So he would definitely be a player Tottenham fans would love to watch. Postecoglou has worked wonders with a number of the players within his squad. And Williams would be a seriously exciting addition to the ranks ahead of his second season at the helm.
But clearly, there is a lot of interest in Williams due to his form this season and the release clause in his contract.
Tottenham however, will be confident that they can rival anyone for the attacker’s signature given the progress that they have made since Postecoglou was appointed.
