Arsenal target allowed summer departure

ashleywilliams.jpgThere a few interested looks in the Football Transfer Tavern at the latest reports from Sky Sports which suggest that Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup may be ready to sell Liverpool and Arsenal Ashley Williams this summer.

The Swans boss has admitted to the news channel that the impressive defender could be offloaded in order to fund other transfer activity at the Liberty Stadium with Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers both keen admirers.

He said: “There has been a lot of talk and let’s see what happens.

“He extended his contract not so long ago, like I did.

“Maybe we have to accept one player will go but not any more. We have to strengthen to consolidate because a lot of the teams below us in the table will spend more money.

“Those sums are above what we pay so we have to do things in different ways.

“There is a lot of work to do this summer. One thing is to find them and another to then go and sign them.”

The Welsh captain has been continuously linked with a £10 million move to both Liverpool and Arsenal in the past few months and it appears likely that he has now played his last game for the South Wales outfit.

Can Williams secure a move away from the Liberty Stadium and where to? Rate this rumour below.
