Arsenal are leading the hunt to bring Chris Smalling back to English football next summer, according to the Mirror.
Would Smalling be a good signing for Arsenal?
A run of poor performances for Manchester United and England had seriously damaged his reputation, but he has looked like a new player over in Italy, and is more than deserving of another chance in the Premier League.
So far this term he has averaged a Whoscored rating of 7.48, and that level of consistency and dependability is not only what he was lacking last season, but what the Gunners are lacking right now.
It remains to be seen how much he would cost, but if the price was right, and if United were willing to sell, then this could be a smart move from the Gunners.
