Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams has reacted to reported interest from Premier League side Liverpool in his services.

The Spaniard has been consistently linked with a move to Anfield over a long period with the 22-year-old thought to have a buyout clause of £42.5million in his contract.

He has scored 20 goals in 89 appearances for the club after making his debut in December 2014 against Cordoba.

And Williams admits he is “very lucky” to be linked with such a prestigious club as Liverpool.

“Lots of things are coming out in the news but I am calm,” Williams told Sportium.

“If [Liverpool] are looking at me it’s because I’m doing things well. I’m very lucky.

“If tomorrow I had to leave I would always be very honest with Athletic. They’ve given me everything.

“The first I would do is speak to the president [if I wanted to leave.]”
