Arsenal to slap in £8M bid for Swansea defender Williams

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is planning an £8 million bid for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams.

The Guardian says Wenger has identified the Wales captain as someone with the leadership qualities to control and organise Arsenal's defence the way it was when the club built a large part of their success on having dominant figures such as Tony Adams, Martin Keown or Steve Bould in the heart of their back four.

Arsenal face competition for the 28-year-old Williams from Liverpool.
