Rising through the Athletic ranks broke out a sensational youngster whose brilliance currently wreaks havoc in club football. Since debuting for the Athletic club in 2021, Nico Williams has proved his mettle in La Liga. Boasting off a staggering 27 goal contributions last season, Nico bolstered the Athletic attack alongside brother Inaki Williams and the target man, Gorka Guruzeta.

Moreover, Nico's recent heroics in the ongoing UEFA Euros have made him a possible buyout option for some of the biggest European clubs. Netting an important goal alongside a clutch assist against Georgia in the Round of 16, the jet-heeled winger is proving his potential on the biggest stage.

In addition, FC Barcelona, since Dembele's PSG departure, has been looking for natural wingers who can deploy the opposition's backline to create vital chances in the final third of the game. Recently, former Barca forward Rivaldo acknowledged the Spaniard's utility in the Catalan camp, saying,

""Nico Williams has everything in order to succeed at Barça. The club needs to go for him.""


Though Barca's ongoing FFP struggle seems an issue for going all out for the Basque striker, Williams' interest in representing the Catalan Giants could ease the deal. According to Mundo Deportivo's recent report, Nico Williams is 'crazy' to join Barcelona, he has made the club his top priority & is even willing to wait for Barça.

The report further revealed that Chelsea's arousing interest in the Spaniard has slowed as they have received a clear response from Nico's entourage. Nico's eagerness to light up the Camp Nou has made it clear that he only wants Barca. Though the deal's future is still uncertain, the chances of his Barca move have increased tremendously.
