Arsenal show new interest in Ashley Williams

The Mirror have reported that Arsenal have shown new interest in defender Ashley Williams following defensive problems for the Gunners.

Wenger sent scouts to watch the 28-year-old during Swansea’s Europa League win against Malmö on Thursday night.

Swansea originally wanted £10 million for the Welshman, a sum which Arsenal wasn’t ready to pay. Now, however, Swansea could be willing to let him go for £8.5 million.

Arsenal have during the pre-season suffered from some defensive set-backs with both Thomas Vermaelen and Nacho Monreal expected to miss the start of the season.

 

This has left Wenger looking for someone to strengthen their options.
