Barcelona have reportedly been in touch with Nico Williams’ agentFelix Taintaas they eye a move for the forward on a free transfer next summer.
The update comes from Diario Sport who reckon Athletic Club know all about interest from Barcelona but will try to ward off interest by renewing Williams’ contract.
Williams is set to be offered a new three-year deal by the Basque side, although it’s not clear if he will stay or is tempted by a move away.
The report does highlight the 21-year-old’s strong relationship with a number of Barcelona players who are also in the Spain squad.
It’s thought Williams is good friends with Gavi and Alejandro Balde and has also struck up a new friendship with Lamine Yamal.
Williams spoke about his contract situation last month and urged supporters to be calm, but speculation about his future is likely to increase as his contract ticks down and no renewal is signed.
