Arsenal are intensifying their pursuit of Swansea City defender Ashley Williams.

The Welshman has emerged as a top target for Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, though Liverpool are also keen.

Reports that the Gunners had a £9m bid rejected by Swansea in January are wide of the mark, says the Liverpool Echo, but it is understood that they are now ready to make a formal offer, though their hopes of landing him could depend on whether or not they secure Champions League football next season.
