Arsenal transfer news: Ashley Williams, Jeremy Toulalan, Jordan Lukaku
Arsenal FC transfer news hint that the Gunners are preparing to bid for the Swansea captain, Ashley Williams, to correct the problems with the defence of the Emirates side. The 2-1 loss against Tottenham Hotspurs places the Gunners 7 points behind the North London team as Wenger continues to find his team in problems.
The Emirates side is not the only club interested in the Williams, as Brendan Rodgers is also looking to procure the centre-half, who led Swansea to a Capital One Cup title. Wenger had already been looking to acquire a defender during the January transfer window and the result against the Spurs has hastened his search for a key player in defense.
Williams is rated at £8 million and is under contract until 2015. Arsenal FC has set its sights on Malaga midfielder, Jeremy Toulalan and might bring in the player to the Emirates side during the summer transfer window. Jeremy runs out of contract this summer and Wenger might be looking to purchase the 29-year-old at a reduced price.
Considering the recent form of Arsenal FC, Toulalan will be apt for the side, which is struggling to make it into the top four of the Premier League. Arsenal FC has also been linked to Jordan Lukaku, the younger brother of Romelu Lukaku. The 18-year-old plays on both the flanks for Belgian club, Anderlecht.
The Gunners face competition from AC Milan towards the signing of the player. Arsenal FC seems to be leading the race for signing Jordan as the winger had earlier expressed his admiration for the Gunners.
