Aston Villa is leading the Premier League clubs and Barcelona in the battle to sign another star before the free agency transfer deadline.

According to Sport, Aston Villa are one of the clubs interested in signing Athletic Club star Nico Williams.

The winger is in the final year of his contract, which includes a €50 million buyout clause, and there is no clear indication of his long-term future at the La Liga club.

This has prompted Aston Villa, Barcelona, and a few other clubs to keep an eye on his status at the Basque club.

The report focuses on the Catalan club’s interest in the 21-year-old, who has been highlighted as a priority target for next summer. They even claim Barca has met with his agent.

Barcelona would face competition from Aston Villa, Liverpool, and Newcastle United, all of whom have expressed “special interest” in the Spain international.
