Welsh captain wants Arsenal move this summer
Arsenal & Swansea City transfer news: Ashley Williams has set his sights on a move to north London this summer
Swansea City captain Ashley Williams is ready to leave the Welsh club and is eyeing a move to Premier League giants Arsenal.
The defender has enjoyed two very successful Premier League seasons in the white of Swansea City, but as he nears his 29th birthday, he feels like it's best for his career to move on now and move to the higher level before it's too late.
Williams has helped guide Swansea to a mid-table finish this season and also a trophy at Wembley after they beat League Two side Bradford City 5-0 in the Capital One Cup final back in February.
Despite admitting that a move to a bigger club interests him, Williams might be priced out of that dream-move because of Swansea's asking price, which stands at £10million, a price that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger doesn't seem likely to pay after finding out Laurent Koscielny's desire to stay at the Emirates.
However it isn't only Arsenal that are interested in the Welshman as ex-Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is also keen with linking up with the 28-year-old again as he eyes a move to bring him to Anfield.
Despite the reported interest from different clubs and also the player himself admitting he wants to leave Swansea, the club chairman has revealed no formal bids have been made.
“While there seems to be constant speculation about Ashley Williams, I can honestly say that I haven’t had one call from anybody about him,” Huw Jenkins said.
