Tottenham have joined other English clubs in the race to sign La Liga sensation Nico Williams. The 21-year-old forward is set to spark a Premier League frenzy by finally opening up for a transfer in the summer.

Until now, Williams, who plays for Athletic Bilbao in the same side as his brother Inaki Williams, has shown unwavering commitment.

It is not unusual for players to display such loyalty—it is a key strength of their Basque identity—yet for the first time, there is a feeling he will consider a future away from the club, sources in Spain say.

Tottenham Join Aston Villa, Liverpool and Arsenal in Pursuit Of Nico Williams

Aston Villa have made most headway in terms of understanding the terms needed to sign him, and they do feel his profile fits perfectly under the team build of Unai Emery.

Liverpool and Arsenal have also been linked, and sources are indicating that Tottenham also firmly have him on their list of attacking candidates to sign in the summer window.

Bayern Munich, Barcelona, and Real Madrid are known admirers of Williams, who has a £43 million release clause in his contract.

Williams’ ball-carrying ability and final-third creativity have always given him a high ceiling in the game, but he is now starting to show a real maturity to his game, which is leading to real interest from top clubs. He scored a brilliant goal as Bilbao beat Barcelona 4-2 last week and has five goals and 10 assists so far this season.

Tottenham are to continue to develop reports on his game over the course of this season, with an attempt to sign him in the summer.

Tottenham’s Enhanced Recruitment Strategy Under Ange Postecoglu

While Spurs may not quite have the pulling prowess of some of the other big clubs pursuing Williams, their new identity under Ange Postecoglou gives them an edge.

Sources indicate a distinct change in the club’s atmosphere this season, emphasising improved recruitment strategies, talent identification, and data management, enhancing their player profiling in the market.

Spurs can also offer players a stable environment with a clear vision of the future, and they feel they are in a strong position to sign any player interested in landing a big move.

Pulling off the signing of Swedish starlet Lucas Bergvall, who had been set to join Barcelona, is a case in point.

As well as Williams, Spurs are monitoring several other players for their front line at the moment. Among these are Raphinha from Barcelona, Pedro Neto from Wolves, and Roony Bardghji from Copenhagen.
