Tottenham Hotspur are keeping tabs on Athletic Club star Nico Williams

Tottenham Hotspur have always had an eye for emerging talent, and the latest name on their radar is the dynamic Spanish winger, Nico Williams. The 21-year-old Athletic Club forward currently stands poised to become available on a free transfer next summer. This prospect has ignited the interest of several top clubs, both in the Premier League and abroad.

Williams is not just any ordinary young talent; he’s a versatile winger who can seamlessly switch between flanks, offering his team creativity and flair in abundance. His versatility on the pitch remains matched by his versatility on the international stage, where he has earned 10 caps for the Spanish national team, with some of those appearances coming in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

While Williams is a rising star in Spain, clubs like Liverpool, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Juventus, and Aston Villa have all shown their keen interest in the young Basque sensation. The competition for his signature remains fierce, given his undeniable potential and the fact that he could come by without any transfer fee.

Williams to N17?

As things stand, Athletic Club still hopes to secure Williams’ future at San Mames. However, the clock is ticking as he approaches the window where he can start discussing a potential move as a free agent in 2024 (Transfermarkt) with overseas clubs. This situation has put Tottenham on high alert.

While the future remains uncertain for Williams at Athletic Club, the prospect of him joining Tottenham is tantalising. Spurs fans would welcome a young, talented, and versatile winger with open arms, especially one with a proven track record in one of Europe’s top leagues.
