Report: Liverpool blow as dazzling Euro speed machine agrees huge release clause
Athletic Bilbao forward and Liverpool target Inaki Williams has agreed a massive seven-year contract that will see him remain in Spain until 2025, according to a report.
The Sun has revealed that the fast La Liga forward was being eyed up by the Reds, who were keen to add the six-goal hitman to their already prolific attack.
But news has filtered through that the Spanish attacker has agreed to new terms that will see him stay with Bilbao until 2025.
The player confirmed the news on his personal Twitter page.

And in a move that will further dissuade the Reds, the La Liga outfit have stuck a huge £96million buy-out clause on the player’s head.
Football Insider verdict:
With a seven-year deal now signed and sealed, any interest the Reds previously had in the player will now have dissipated. Bilbao have never allowed a player to leave for less than the buy-out clause which means there is no way Liverpool would be able to sign their target without stumping up the millions that the La Liga club want. It looks clear that the 23-year-old is more than happy in Spain and this move is dead.
