Liverpool are interested in signing Inaki Williams this summer but could be put off by his €50m buyout clause, according to Guillem Balague.

The Reds have been reported to be keeping tabs on the 22-year-old forward along with Serie A side Juventus as the summer transfer window draws closer.

Jurgen Klopp is likely to want to bolster his Liverpool strikeforce in the summer transfer window as he begins to think about preparing his team for a possible return to the Champions League next season.

Now, Spanish football expert Balague has delivered the latest news on Williams’ future, claiming that the player would be interested in a move abroad in the summer transfer window.

Asked about Liverpool’s reported interest in Williams, Balague told Sky Sports: “He was followed by Liverpool and has a €50m buyout clause.

“I’m not sure any team would be willing to pay that right now because he has not proved that valuation.

“He is in no rush but he is certainly looking abroad should he move.”
