Arsenal linked with Smalling move

Arsenal are amongst a clutch of Premier League clubs interested in signing Chris Smalling.

The Manchester United defender is currently on a season long loan with Roma, and has impressed the Serie A side so much that they want to make the arrangement permanent.

However, having so far failing to match United’s valuation of the player, he could be set for a return to England at the end of the season. With there unlikely to be a place for him at Old Trafford with the establishment of Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof as the starting defensive pair, United could be ready to sell the former England defender, which will alert Leicester and Everton, as well as the Gunners.

However, Arsenal could well be favourites to sign him, with scouts watching his performance on Friday night as he helped Roma keep a clean sheet against Serie A league leaders Inter Milan at the San Siro.
