The upcoming weeks and months will be telling for FC Barcelona and their future plans. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the Catalan club needs new reinforcements to improve their squad. To ensure success next season, Barcelona need their team to find and reach new heights.

However, things are always much easier said than done. FC Barcelona hardly has the finances to go after the biggest transfer operations in the market right now but that does not stop the media and rumor mill from constantly linking the Catalan club to the best of the best.

One of the players who has been heavily linked to Barcelona in recent times is Nico Williams. The 21-year-old Athletic Club star has been gaining a lot of attention from fans of Barcelona and even the journalists connected to the club, with many hoping that he becomes the next big name to dress up in Blaugrana colors.

Moreover, as highlighted by Fabrizio Romano, Williams is also more than welcome at the club for a certain star of Barcelona as well. Pedri, the 21-year-old midfield star who formerly won the Golden Boy award and is currently a teammate of Nico’s in the Spanish National team, had the following to say about the possibility of the Athletic Club star joining Barça at some point:

“Nico Williams would be a spectacular signing for us at Barcelona, it’d be incredible… He’s a player who is already showing what he’s capable of. I hope he can join us.”

Such big words from Pedri are not the first of its kind when it comes to Nico Williams. Other Barcelona stars have also previously name-dropped the player as someone who they would love to see at Barcelona and go on to play with at club level as well.

Recent reports have begun to gain more momentum, and the rumors connecting Nico Williams to FC Barcelona are not slowing down. It remains a difficult deal to pull off from a financial standpoint, but Barça may have to put everything behind it given the hype and excitement over such a possibility.
