Chelsea eyeing £43m Arsenal and Spurs target who’s faster than Kylian Mbappe

Chelsea have reportedly joined the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the race for Spain winger Nico Williams.

According to The Telegraph, Mauricio Pochettino‘s Blues have been impressed by Williams‘ progress at Athletic Bilbao and now have him on their radar

Chelsea are likely to have to contend with Spurs and the Gunners in the summer, with recent reports linking the north Londoners to Williams too.

The Mirror reported in February that Arsenal have been sending their scouts to make checks on the 21-year-old attacking ace.

In the same month, Sportslens journalist Dean Jones suggested that Tottenham are keen on Williams, who’s flying for Athletic.

Although a striker will apparently be Chelsea’s priority, with Victor Osimhen and Benjamin Sesko among their top targets, Williams has also caught their eye.

The report claims the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal could expect to pay £43million for the Athletic man, his purported release clause.

In terms of wages, Williams apparently earns £100,000-a-week after tax in Spain. This is something the Blues, the Gunners and Spurs would have to at least match.

Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham all linked with Nico Williams
Williams would be a good shout for Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham alike. He’s a talented and rapid attacking talent who looks like he has a bright future in the game.

At just 21 years of age, he has already made over 100 Athletic appearances. He has registered 36 goal contributions, and has won 11 caps for Spain, netting twice.

Williams has been labelled an “incredible” athlete. And there has been a suggestion that he is even faster than Kylian Mbappe.

And even though the player penned a new contract just last year, his release clause is believed to have stayed the same. This would be a significant green light for the London trio.

Let’s see what happens in the coming months. It could be an exciting transfer race on the cards for one of Spain’s top talents
