Arsenal target shock £10million deal for Man United defender?

Chris SmallingThere are some shocked faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern after our landlord informs us of the latest claim coming from Metro and as per usual, long suffering Arsenal fans are the ones ordering another drink.

According to Metro, the Gunners are ready and willing to make a £10 million bid for Chris Smalling in order to shore up their defence and as our regulars note, that is not exactly great news.

Smalling is one of the biggest issues Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is currently facing and the majority of United fans think that the sooner the Red Devils can rid themselves of Smalling, the better – and we have to agree.

The only thing we cannot understand is why Arsene Wenger thinks that it would be a good idea to move for the versatile defender – and the only bit of advice our landlord has to offer is that he should never do a Twitter Q&A after seeing what happened to Nacho Monreal!

Arsenal fans. Does this show just how much of an idiot Wenger is in the transfer market, let alone in general? Let us know your thoughts below.
