Liverpool are considering a move to sign Swansea's Ashley Williams in the summer but Arsenal appear favourites to land him.

Liverpool: Defender race on

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will be looking to add at least two new centre-backs in the summer, following the retirement of Jamie Carragher, and the Welsh international is said to be close to the top of his wanted list.

The pair know each other from their time together at Swansea, although that is unlikely to swing the move in Rodgers' favour as reports claim Arsenal are his preferred choice.
Swansea want to keep him in south Wales but, although he has stated he is very happy at the Liberty Stadium, the chance to join a high-profile club will prove very difficult to turn down.
