West African neighbors Ghana wants Atletico Bilbao talisman Inaki Dennis Williams, but the 21-year-old reports say may be favoring the Lone Stars of Liberia instead, as he will be expected to team up with with Dioh Williams and William Jerbo upfront, in what will be a lethal combination. With Liberia’s current afcons and world cup 2018 campaigns on track, the addition of Inaki Williams from Spain could add boost to Coach James Debbah rebuilding plans, observers have said.

The forward who qualifies to feature for either Liberia or Ghana if he chooses, also plays for the “Spanish U21 side, and is being hotly pursued by Ghana’s Football Association to commit his international future with the Black Stars as his father hails from the West African country,” a Ghanian publication reported, but Williams say, he wants to travel to Liberia to be with his people for all the support they have shown him.

Williams’s mother is Liberian, and the Liberian Football Association have also expressed interest in the talented youngster.

“I want to travel to the Liberia to be with them and let them feel proud for all the support they have shown me,” the mesmerizing forward said recently.

Israeli trainer Avram Grant and the Ghana Black Stars are still keeping their hopes alive but they may be on the losing end, as the mouthwatering goal getter have already expressed interest in Liberia.

The Liberian FA has said it was sending Africa’s and World 1995 player George Weah to Spain to convince the player to play for the Lone Stars, it is not clear how far the negotiations have gone thus far. Williams have said he don’t feel Ghanaian already complicating the GFA plans to bag him. but even without Williams the Black Stars are an established side.

Inaki Williams had a splendid season at Atletico ,scoring in every game he played last season, including the Uefa Europa League, Spanish La Liga and the Spanish Cup. If it is anything to go by pundits say Williams could declare for Liberia soon.

Liberia is coming off impressive wins against the Cartage Eagles of Tunisia at home, ranked 33 in the world at the time of the match at the famous Antoinette Stadium in Monrovia and a 3-1 win also this week, drubbing African Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau away on home turf.

It was a pivotal win for the Lone Stars, with Gefle IF workhorse Dioh Williams dribbling in the middle and upfront as he partnered Sundowns senior player Anthony Snoti Lafford who two assists silenced the African Wild Dogs in the first half, before Jerbo added his 3rd in the 96 minute. It was Liberia’s first victory away since 2001, drawing 1 game, conceding 78 goals, and scoring 15. Inaki Williams will find plenty of talents to play with, as the Lone Stars is rebuilding, and the early results look encouraging.
