Arsenal to go back for Ashley Williams after Vermaelen injury

The Daily Mail is reporting this morning that Arsenal are going to go back with a bid for Ashley Williams, as we have heard that Thomas Vermaelen will miss the strart of the season through injury.

The Gunners are stepping up their interest in Swansea defender Ashley Williams following Thomas Vermaelen’s back injury.

The Wales international is a key target for Arsene Wenger this summer, but Arsenal have baulked at the central-defender’s £10million asking price.

But as Sportsmail revealed on Tuesday, captain Vermaelen is likely to miss the start of the season due to the recurrence of a lower back problem, leaving the Gunners with just two fit senior centre-halves; Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker.

Who thinks he will fit in nicely in the Arsenal team?
