Real Madrid refused, Arsenal spent heavily to recruit a ‘blockbuster’ of €50m

According to journalist Jose Felix Diaz, Nico Williams was asked to join Real Madrid but this deal was not considered by the Board of Directors of the White Vultures. .

Currently, it seems that Real Madrid are not considering recruiting the 21-year-old Spaniard in January and if Arsenal really wants the signature of Williams, they need to spend heavily in the winter.

However, Arsenal needs to reinforce many places before thinking about bringing in another winger. Journalist Fabrizio Romano recently revealed that Arsenal’s number one priority in the winter is to recruit a defensive midfielder with the unclear futures of Jorginho and Thomas Partey.

Nico Williams speaks about the future

Nico Williams is emerging as one of the stars most pursued by many big teams right now. The Spanish player possesses speed and impressive dribbling skills. Last season, he scored 8 goals and contributed 17 more assists.

Spanish media said that there is a contract release clause worth 43 million pounds between Williams and Bilbao, so teams with rich financial resources, such as Arsenal, really want to own the 21-year-old player.

However, at the present time, Williams does not seem to care about the future story. Sharing in a recent interview with Cope, he said:

”I am very happy in Bilbao, it is the club that has given me everything. I know clearly where I will be in pre-season. That’s all.

I told my agent that I don’t want to know anything until the EURO is over .
