Liverpool reportedly had scouts in attendance at Athletico Bilboa’s La Liga match against Sevilla last week, with Inaki Williams the subject of their interest.
Williams, 22, has been linked with a move to Merseyside in recent weeks, as Jurgen Klopp looks towards adding to his squad in the summer.
According to a report in Italy, Juventus are also scouting the young Spaniard.
Williams reportedly has a 50 million euro (£43 million) release clause, but a deal for the Basque-born player. A previous report has explained how dealing with Athletico is complicated and would require lots of groundwork on a deal to be done early.
Williams has five goals and seven assists in 36 appearances in all competitions this season. He’s a versatile, pacy attacker who can play anywhere in the front three.
He could be viewed either as a replacement for Daniel Sturridge, or as a fast wide option to reduce the reliance on Sadio Mane next season.
