Impressed by his Euros exploits, Barcelona have reportedly placed Nico Williams at the top of their summer shopping list.

Barcelona have reportedly bumped up the desire for Athletic Club's winger Nico Williams to priority number one following the 21-year-old's ovation-worthy performance against Georgia in the European Championships round of 16 clash.

The Blaugrana are in the market for a left winger and have been linked with a number of options. 

Sporting director Deco is said to be a huge fan of Liverpool's Luis Diaz and he is one of the players linked with Barcelona in that position. 

They have also been linked with Williams, and according to a report from Relevo's Alex Pintanel, the player’s performances in Europe have placed him at the top of the club's list this summer, suggesting they will make a serious effort to land him.

Williams scored and assisted in the 4-1 victory against Georgia tonight, spurring fans to urge the club to land the Basque winger. Super Falcons Asisat Oshoala did the same, as she tweeted “Nico to Barcelona..  here we go.”

It could all be wishful thinking for the Blaugrana and their fans, however, given their well-reported financial straits. Nico has a reported €58 million release clause and is also said to be demanding high wages.
