Arsenal lining up 3 million pound swoop for contract rebel Ashley Williams…
Read more Arsenal gossip.
After having reportedly followed Swansea City’s Welshman Ashley Williams for most of last summer, Arsenal have renewed their interest in the player, according to The Metro.
It is believed that the 29 year old, who just has a year left on his deal with the Welsh side, has opted against its renewal and is looking to move away from the Liberty Stadium. Consequently, it is said that the north Londoners are considering pouncing for the player, by spending £3m.
Williams may serve as an insurance policy for the Gunners in the wake of the uncertainty surrounding Thomas Vermaelen’s future at the club. The Belgian has refused to divulge anything definite about his post-World Cup future, which in turn has shrouded his future at the Emirates in clouds of doubt.
Williams with his comfort on the ball and solid distribution may prove to be a good addition to the Arsenal squad.
