Barcelona line up Nico Williams transfer alternative

Barcelona are determined to bring in a new winger this summer but Athletic Club star Nico Williams is not an option.

Williams has been linked as a long term option for La Blaugrana but his immediate future is in Bilbao.

The Spanish international has signed contract extension in Basque Country and his release clause is rumoured to be at least €60m.


Barcelona’s financial situation dictates they cannot afford that and will look elsewhere to bolster their attack.

As per the latest update from Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are considering a move for Porto’s left winger Pepe, after he impressed against them in the Champions League group stages earlier this season.

The 27-year-old is valued at around €25m, and would be a more viable target than Williams, after racking up eight goals and ten assists so far in 2023/24.

Williams’ Spain international teammate Dani Olmo is also an option but he is unconvinced over a return to his boyhood club from RB Leipzig.
