Arsenal and Liverpool to battle it out over Swansea Captain Ashley Williams

Arsenal set to battle Liverpool for Swansea City captain Ashley Williams.

Arsenal are pressing ahead with their interest in Swansea defender Ashley Williams but will have to battle off interest from Liverpool. Former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly after his former skipper.

The centre back has had an impressive season for Michael Laudrup's side, and his performances have alerted Wenger and his influential chief scout Steve Rowley.

They will follow up their interest with a bid this summer, but will face stiff competition from Liverpool, where former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to be reunited with Williams.

Sources close to Swansea's skipper claim the Wales international will find it difficult to turn down the chance of a move to a more high-profile club this summer.
