Piers Morgan, a popular British journalist and Arsenal fan, has urged manager Mikel Arteta to sign Athletic Bilbao winger Nicolas Williams in the summer transfer window.

Williams produced an outstanding display as Spain thumped Georgia to progress to the quarter-final of the UEFA Euro 2024 Championship in Germany.

The Athletic Bilbao forward has been one of Spain's best players at the competition and was on target in the 4-1 victory over Georgia at the RheinEnergieStadion on Sunday, June 30.

Morgan, who was left impressed by the performances of Williams, quickly took to social media to tell Arteta to go for the Spanish forward.

"Sign him, Mikel Arteta," he posted on X, with a photo of the youngster.

Arsenal have been long linked with the 21-year-old but will face competition from Barcelona and other potential suitors for the services of the forward.

The versatile forward has been a key figure at San Mames, where he plays alongside his senior brother, Inaki Williams, for the Rojiblancos. The brothers inspired Athletic Bilbao to their first Copa Del Rey title in 40 years after winning the title last season.

Although the future of Nico at Bilbao remains a huge doubt, the winger looks focused on the Euros and will only make a decision after the tournament.

Meanwhile, Spain will face host Germany in the quarter-final of the competition on Friday, per UEFA.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Ghana forward Inaki Williams was full of praise for Nico Williams after another impressive display as Spain eased part Georgia in the Round of 16 at Euro 2024.

Nico scored a sensational goal, his first at the European Championship, as the former champions came from a goal down to beat Georgia 4-1 on Sunday, June 30, at the RheinEnergieStadion.

The Athletic Bilbao took the ball from the halfway line before out-pacing his marker with a cheeky skill and then firing Spain's third with 15 minutes remaining.
