Williams’ recent eye-catching performances have attracted the attention of several important European clubs with Liverpool among those targeting a move for him.

The youngster has a £49.3m[€58m] release clause in his current contract with the Basque club and Ernesto Valverde’s side don’t want to let the winger leave for anything less than that. Therefore, the Spaniard won’t be a cheap signing for the Reds should they manage to acquire his service.
