Williams has established himself as a key man for the La Liga outfit, with three goals and six assists contributing to a WhoScored rating of 7.30 in Spain's top tier this term. 


And his form in Spain has not gone unnoticed, with the Premier League duo reportedly keeping tabs on the 21-year-old. 


Chelsea looked at bringing in a right winger last summer having courted Michael Olise before the Frenchman signed a new deal at Crystal Palace.


They did sign Cole Palmer from Manchester City but they're aiming to bring in further bodies as they seek to re-establish themselves as a dominant Premier League side.


Both Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk have also struggled for consistency at Stamford Bridge this season with the Blues earmarking Williams as a potential addition in the summer as a result.

Arsenal meanwhile are aiming to add strength in depth in the final third and were linked with a move Mohammed Kudus before his move to West Ham. 


Only Savio (64) has completed more dribbles than Williams (56) in La Liga this season.
