Arsenal to slap in bid for Swansea defender Williams

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to slap in a bid for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams.

The Daily Star Sunday says Arsenal are in desperate need of ­another central defender after ­Thomas Vermaelen, 27, was ruled out for three months with a back injury.

Wenger has bid £8m and is reluctant to increase his offer for Swans ace Williams, 28, to any more than £10m.

The Gunners are short at the back after releasing Sebastien Squillaci and loaning out Johan Djourou to Hamburg.
