Rumours have been circulating since the Manchester United loss to Newcastle in which the England international Chris Smalling played quite a huge negative role in.

Smalling conceded a free-kick by diving, from which the Magpies managed to score the only goal of the game, frustrating fans and reportedly Jose Mourinho too.

Apparently it upset the Portuguese manager so much that he decided to move the centre-back on right then and there with the London club being linked ever since.

Arsene Wenger has publicly stated his desire to reinforce defensively but whether his target is the former Fulham man or not is yet to be seen.

According to Metro, the Daily Star report that the Red Devils have asked for £25m from the Gunners in order to secure Chris’ transfer in the summer.

The quoted number represents good value since he’s rated at £16m according to Transfermarkt and given that United bought him for pocket change.
