Sunderland take the lead in the race for Arsenal target

Ashley WilliamsWe don’t get many Sunderland fans in the Football Transfer Tavern but when we do they’re loud and very, very proud – especially on the karaoke machine.

And they may soon be putting on a song and a dance as according to the Daily Star, Sunderland boss Gus Poyet wants to bring Swansea City’s Ashley Williams to the club.

It’s understood that the former Brighton & Hove Albion manager has launched a bid in the region of £4 million for the 29-year-old Welsh international.

Williams is yet to sign a new deal at the Liberty Stadium and it’s prompted a flurry of interest from many clubs including Arsenal.

But it now seems that Sunderland are the first team to make a firm offer for the former Stockport County defender who can leave for free next summer should the Swans block a deal.

The Black Cats are looking at a number of potential targets this summer as they look to avoid yet another Premier League relegation fight.

Sunderland fans. Ashley Williams would certainly be a great start when it comes to improving your squad. But who else needs to come in? Let us know your thought below.
