Swansea to fight Arsenal over transfer duo


Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup will battle to keep hold of Arsenal targets Ashley Williams and Michu until the end of the transfer window, according to the Metro.

The South Wales club have had a hectic start to the season, safely coming through the Europa League qualifiers, but they are still looking for their first Premier League point of the season as they host West Brom today.

Williams and Michu have both been linked with a move to the Emirates as Arsene Wenger becomes more desperate to add to his thin squad before Monday night’s transfer deadline.

The Gunners host North London neighbours Tottenham Hotspur today and a defeat may see a real backlash from the fans after a stuttering start to the season.

Swansea are not prepared to let their men leave for anything less than their asking prices and Laudrup is set to wait patiently tomorrow before the inevitable call comes in from Wenger.
