Inaki Williams: Liverpool to miss out on target?

Reported Liverpool target Inaki Williams has officially signed a new deal with Athletic Bilbao until 2025, with a bumper release clause.

Jurgen Klopp has reportedly been eyeing the 23-year-old for months, however Williams has put an end to speculation by penning a new contract.

The deal has a release clause worth €80million that will progressively rise until it reaches €108m, and history shows that the LaLiga club do not sell players for even a penny below that fee.

The Spain international has appeared in all 19 of the club’s league outings this season, amassing seven combined goals and assists, as well as scoring twice in the Champions League.

In a statement on Twitter, Williams revealed his happiness at “playing for the badge for the next eight years” and insisting that Athletic is where he wants to play his football.
