Nico Williams has had an excellent season at Athletic Club, and it is far from done. The next six games will decide whether the Bilbao-based club will compete in next season’s Champions League, and he might play a key part in the pursuit of Atletico Madrid, who are only three points ahead.

Even if Athletic does not place in the top four, Williams might play in the Champions League next season. According to GiveMeSport, Aston Villa is among the clubs interested in signing him this summer.

Unai Emery, who signed a new contract with Villa earlier this week, is a huge fan of the 21-year-old and would approve a transfer. Williams’ release clause is set at €50 million, but negotiating on personal terms could be difficult, since the Spanish winger has indicated no desire to leave this summer.

According to recent sources, Barcelona is also interested in Williams, but will not be able to make a move until 2025 due to budgetary constraints. They will be hopeful that he stays with Athletic Club for another season and refuses any offers during the summer transfer window.
