Arsenal are eyeing a surprise move for Swansea defender Ashley Williams, according to reports.

Wenger is reportedly in search of a centre defender as he attempts to bolster his squad ahead of next season and Swansea’s captain Ashley William is the new name being linked with a move to the Emirates.

Wenger has been monitoring a host of centre defenders across Europe including Matt Hummels who recently agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich and AS Roma’s Kostas Manolas.

However, according to a report in the Sunday Express, Wenger has been alerted by the news that Swansea could be willing to sell their captain this summer.
