Dortmund move for Inaki Williams

Borussia Dortmund are willing to trigger the €50m release clause of Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams, say reports in Spain.

According to Diario AS, the Bundesliga side are intent on spending the majority of the initial €105m they received for Ousmane Dembele’s sale to Barcelona.

The Ghanaian-born Spanish international – who has scored 26 goals in 123 appearances for Athletic Club – is said to be happy in Bilbao and has no intention of forcing a move, having signed a new deal at the San Mames last year.

"I have always said, and I maintain, that I am where I want to be and that I am very happy in Bilbao," Williams told Marca in January.

"I do not want a change of pace, my family is very comfortable here, my teammates are happy with me and I am very happy to be with them. My first choice will always be Athletic.

"I am where I want to be and also very happy. Having a contract [until 2021] gives stability but I am not satisfied with what I have achieved. I always aspire to have more. I want more renewals [with Athletic] to come in the future."
