Arsenal plot £10m first move for Manchester United starlet target

Arsenal are plotting a £10million move for Crystal Palace starlet Jonathan Williams, according to reports.

The Sunday People claims Arsene Wenger is ‘still smarting’ after missing out on Wilfried Zaha in the January transfer window, and is willing to spend big to lure the 19-year-old to the Emirates Stadium.

Williams has enjoyed a breakthrough season at Selhurst Park, with some fine Npower Championship performances leading to international recognition with Wales.

And, his form hasn’t gone unnoticed amongst the Premier League elite, with Arsenal keen on the teenager.

Wenger has a track record of bringing talented youngsters to north London, with Carl Jenkinson, Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain three examples of players swapping the lower-leagues for the Gunners.

Williams could be next on the Arsenal list; although the paper reports that Ian Holloway is desperate to prevent his rising star leaving.

He’ll also have to fend off interest from Manchester United, with the paper claiming that Sir Alex Ferguson is also keen on the Welshman.

The Red Devils won the race to bring Zaha to Old Trafford, and would gazump their rivals again if they could secure the services of Williams.

However, competition for the signature is sure to be fierce, and Manchester United will have to work hard and spend big if they are to lure the player to the club at the end of the season.
