Juve latest to want Inaki Williams

Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool will do battle for Athletic Bilbao forward Inaki Williams this summer, according to reports in Spain.

The versatile 22-year-old has a €50m release clause with the Basque club and AS report the Italian champions have been regularly sending scouts to monitor his performance in the hope of luring him to Turin.

The Ghanaian-born Spanish international – who has scored 21 goals in 99 appearances for Athletic Club – is also being tracked by Dortmund and Liverpool – who attempted to land him last year when his release clause was €20m.

However, Williams has previously stated he is perfectly happy at his current club and AS does say that he may well sign a new deal to increase his release clause further.

"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."
