Things are beginning to really heat up for FC Barcelona already this summer. La Blaugrana are now actively taking part in the transfer window and want to get some key operations closed. As time continues to pass, Barcelona inch even closer to the objectives they have in mind.

The main priority for Barça at the moment, as confirmed by a key figure of the club itself, is Nico Williams. Electric, dynamic, and an elite winger in every sense of the way, many believe that the 21-year-old Athletic Club forward could truly elevate the level that Barcelona is currently at.

Moreover, the player himself is reportedly more than keen to dress up in the colors of La Blaugrana next season. With Joan Laporta having even stated that the club is in a position to pay his release clause as well, it seems that almost every aspect of the transfer is in order.

However, time may be the only enemy for Barcelona in this particular operation. According to Toni Juanmarti, the Athletic Club forward and Spanish international wants an answer from Barcelona as soon as possible and does not want to delay it until the end of the summer.

Instead, he has given a deadline of sorts and it remains active until early August. For now, Barcelona has time while the player is still on international duty and also for the time that he will then likely take for vacations. After that, complications can arise for both the club and the player.

At the moment, the main concern for Barça is to achieve fair play and be able to proceed with the payment of the release clause. The looming threat of French side Paris Saint-Germain is also there, but the Catalan club believe that the player’s priority to join them could help the club land his signing.

Now, the ball is in Barça’s court and it is up to them to make their minutes count. Barcelona seem really interested in making Nico Williams a player for the club, and they are willing to go all-out for him. It just remains to be seen how efficient La Blaugrana can prove themselves to be now to secure his arrival.
