Liverpool’s reported interest in impressive Athletic Bilbao attacker Inaki Williams continues to be touted in the press, with Mundo Deportivo stating that the Reds are ready to make a January raid for the versatile star.

The Anfield outfit have been arguably the most impressive attacking team in the Premier League so far this season, with the trio of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane standing out.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have netted 18 Premier League goals in eight outings so far, with the speed in which the side counter-attack a key element of their success.

However, it appears that the Merseyside outfit want to bolster their options in the final third, with consistent links to Williams over the last month.

The Bilbao star has broke into the first-team at San Mames as a youth-team graduate and is blessed with blistering pace.

The 22-year-old is versatile enough to play on the flank or as the lone striker, which will surely be a key reason why Klopp is allegedly interested in him.

The latest report suggests that Williams has a £44.6 million release clause with the La Liga club and that Liverpool’s German coach is ready to pay close to that to bring him to Anfield.

Any deal for the Bilbao star would surely put Daniel Sturridge’s future at the Premier League club in even more doubt.
