Liverpool should revisit their interst in £78 million-rated Inaki Williams

Inaki Williams of Athletic Club looks on during the La Liga match between Sevilla FC and Athletic Club at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on May 18, 2019 in Seville, Spain.

The Athletic Bilbao hitman would be an excellent addition for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp manager

Liverpool have one of the most dangerous front-lines in world football, that goes without saying.

The problem for Jurgen Klopp, however, is that he has little in reserve, especially after Daniel Sturridge's release this summer.

So should the Reds be looking to spend bg on another forward this summer?

The simple answer to this question is absolutely yes, if they truly want to progress once again and reach another level next season, and the perfect option for them could be Athletic Bilbao ace Inaki Williams.


The 24-year-old has been a target for Liverpool since 2017, according to the Mirror, and Spanish publication AS claims that he has an €88 million (£78 million) release clause inserted into his current contract with the La Liga outfit.

Williams was in decent form for Athletic Bilbao last season, racking up 15 goals and four assists in 41 appearances in all competitions.

The one-capped Spain international is a centre-forward with blistering pace, and he would provide Jurgen Klopp with an entirely different option through the middle.

Roberto Fimrino likes to drop deep to link up play and rarely offers a threat in behind the opposition's defence - something that the Bilbao ace would bring to Liverpool.

Reports doing the rounds in the media suggest that the Reds are not looking to invest heavily in their squad this summer, but the opportunity to sign a player like Williams will surely make Klopp think twice.

The pacey Spaniard could make a huge difference for Liverpool, and should be a signing that they prioritise this summer.
