Breaking News: Arsenal make €58m step which kills Chelsea’s chances of perfect transfer

The winger for Athletic Bilbao who is now dominating the Euros with Spain, Nico Williams, is one of the most exciting prospects on the transfer market this summer.

The Premier League is paying close attention to him, and Chelsea and Arsenal are currently the front-runners to sign him from the Basque club.

However, an insider this afternoon provided CaughtOffside with some very significant information: Chelsea is still negotiating terms with his representation in an attempt to find a less expensive solution, while Arsenal is prepared to fulfil the €58 million release clause in his contract.

It feels like the end of the road for Chelsea in this specific competition, but it’s a significant win for the Gunners in the campaign to sign Williams. It’s unfortunate because it’s entertaining to see the winger’s electrifying pace and direct approach. His technique is superb, and we believe he has the potential to completely dominate the Premier League. If he moves to Arsenal and improves them, it will be excruciatingly unpleasant.

a race that Chelsea never truly participated in
This would have been a disastrous blow if we had actually had a good chance of landing Williams. However, we’re not at all persuaded by recent rumours that the Athletic Bilbao winger has replaced Michael Olise as our top target on the wing after Olise decided to join Bayern Munich.

Williams is already paid well, and he would like to get paid more if he moves to the Premier League. Chelsea would find it difficult to give the Spain star what he can get elsewhere, even if they were to outbid Arsenal for his transfer.

Arsenal can provide football with players competing for big accolades and at the top of the league thanks to its Champions League money. Chelsea can’t provide something even quite comparable at this time.
