Chelsea identified OGC Nice goalkeeper Marcin Bulka as viable target

In an attempt to entice Nico Williams away from Athletic Bilbao, Chelsea has set their sights on him and is getting ready to activate his sizable release clause. The Blues have established a shortlist of potential additions for the summer transfer window in an effort to strengthen their attack.

Barcelona has two obstacles to overcome. Firstly, high salary demands could make it difficult for them to sign Nico Williams. However, a Mundo Deportivo story suggests that Chelsea is prepared to pay Athletic Bilbao’s termination clause, which would further complicate matters for Barcelona.

The Blues have made the Basque winger their top priority after losing out on Michael Olise, who seems to have chosen to go to Bayern Munich instead. Nico Williams, 21, has a €58 million release clause, as reported by Gianluca di Marzio.

Three other teams along with Chelsea will rival for Nico Williams

Liverpool may now enter the race with an eye toward replacing either Luiz Diaz or Mohamed Salah. Chelsea and Arsenal have had Nico on their wish lists for a while. According to numerous reliable sources, Barcelona is definitely interested in signing Nico Williams from Athletic Bilbao this summer.

But before the end of the month, Barca “needs to fill a €130 million hole in their accounts,” according to The Athletic. Three major Premier League clubs are keeping an eye on Williams while Blaugrana executives scramble to obtain funding.

With 27 goal involvements for Bilbao in the previous season, the 21-year-old winger appears poised to make a major impact on the big stage, even at the Euros.
