      Former Arsenal midfielder, Emmanuel Petit, has called on his old club to prioritize the signing of ‘devastating’ winger Nico Williams from La Liga side Athletic Bilbao in the upcoming summer transfer window.

      Williams has garnered significant interest from multiple Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham.

      Arsenal, particularly keen on bolstering their attacking options, are eyeing Williams as a potential addition to supplement Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli on the wings. Despite previous links to Wolves’ Pedro Neto, Arsenal appears hesitant due to the player’s hefty price tag, making Williams an attractive alternative.

      Petit expressed his belief that Williams would seamlessly fit into Arsenal’s squad, citing the winger’s standout performances in Spain this season, where he has notched five goals and ten assists. Praising Williams’ speed, power, and dribbling skills, Petit emphasized the player’s versatility to operate on either flank or his knack for unsettling defenders.

      While Petit acknowledged the allure of also signing striker Ivan Toney, he suggested prioritizing a forward to provide competition for Martinelli and Saka in Arsenal’s youthful setup.

      Petit’s endorsement of Williams underscores the winger’s potential to make a significant impact at Arsenal, injecting dynamism and creativity into the team’s attacking play.

      “Would Nico Williams be a good fit at Arsenal? Absolutely,” Petit told Betway.

      “He’s been one of the best young players in Spain this season.”
