Nico Williams has been one of the best players in the Euro 2024 tournament.

After a brilliant season with Athletic Bilbao, the 21-year-old took his fine form to Spain, where he has excelled.

Chelsea have been linked with a move for the Spanish winger, with other top sides like Barcelona also said to be interested in Nico Williams.

Chelsea hero Frank Leboeuf, has however stated that if he was Williams, he wouldn’t sign for Chelsea.

Leboeuf believes Nico Williams should be playing in the Champions League next season, and not the Europa Conference League.

Speaking to BoyleSports, Frank Leboeuf said: “Nico Williams would be fantastic for Chelsea — but do you think he would go to Chelsea? They don’t have Champions League football.

“I follow La Liga and he has been brilliant for Athletic Bilbao all season. To put it his way, if I was Williams, I would never go to Chelsea. I saw so many players move to Saudi Arabia and I lost respect for them.

“I couldn’t have done that and it’s a similar situation to Williams. So many big clubs want him and it would be odd for him to move to a club where they are not in the elite European tournament next season.”

Chelsea will be playing in the Europa Conference League in the 2024-25 after finishing sixth in the Premier League last season. Manchester United winning the FA Cup stopped Chelsea from featuring in the Europa League.
