Reports from the Daily Mail suggest Arsenal have been handed a massive boost as Manchester United have named their offer for Chris Smalling.
Arsenal have been told they will need to pay £25m to buy Smalling, a defender Jose Mourinho is keen to get rid of because he’s so bad.
The Gunners have tried signing Jonny Evans from West Brom during the winter transfer window in a bid to solve our defensive crises.
However, Evans could be available for £3m in the summer should West Brom be relegated but will be heading towards 31. Smalling is 28 now, turning 29 in November.
Evans was shipped out by United almost three years ago, and while he has gone on to claim the captain’s armband with the Baggies, his would not be a signing that makes fans think Arsenal are serious about mounting any sort of title charge.
Smalling, the Sunday Star report, is priced at £25m with the Old Trafford outfit setting their price based on West Brom’s valuation of Evans.
