Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is said to have expressed a strong interest in the 22-year-old, but it has also been suggested that Everton are also in the hunt.

Williams has impressed for Bilbao when firing home 16 goals in 69 appearances, while he has also chipped in with eight assists, but he has yet to score this season.

Even so, such form has caught the eye of both Liverpool and Everton, and reports are rife suggesting a battle for his signature will be on the cards when the January transfer window opens.

Williams is very versatile as he can play down either flank as well as down the middle, but he will not come cheap with reports claiming he has a €50m release clause in his contract.
