Both Liverpool and Everton are in the hunt to sign highly rated Athletic Bilbao star Inaki Williams, acceding to Don Balon.

The versatile 22-year-old attacker has come through the youth ranks at the Basque club and has impressed in the San Mames first team with his exhilarating pace and ability to score and create from wide.

Able to play as the furthest man forward in a centre forward role or on either flank, Williams has become a fans favourite at Bilbao and is already a once-capped Spain international.

The latest report suggests that both Liverpool and Everton are circling, with the Merseyside pair interested in a bid for the attacker.

Williams currently has a €50 million (£43 million) release clause with the La Liga club and as such any deal would see the Premier League suitors have to shell out a considerable fee.

Bilbao have shown their stubbornness in the transfer market in the past by rejecting a number of offers for Ander Herrera from Manchester United.
