Arsenal have made an offer to sign Manchester United defender Chris Smalling in the summer transfer window, according to reports in Italy.

Smalling, 30, was deemed surplus to requirements by United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last summer and the centre-back completed a season-long loan move to Roma as he looked to get his career back on track.

The England international’s impressive performances in Serie A have endeared him to supporters at the Stadio Olimpico and Roma are interested in making his deal permanent at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

However, Roma are likely to come up against stiff competition for Smalling’s signature, with Tottenham, Leicester, Everton and Arsenal all ready to test United’s resolve for the ex-Fulham man.

Corriere dello Sport claims United already have an offer on the table from Arsenal for Smalling and the north London club have ‘asked for information’ regarding a potential summer deal.

The report suggests that the coronavirus pandemic has made a return to England a ‘concrete option’ for Smalling considering the distance between him and close family members.

Arsenal have already signed young Saint-Etienne centre-back William Saliba – who will arrive at the Emirates this summer – but Smalling has emerged as a serious target, with Mikel Arteta is determined to add another defender to his squad over the coming months.

Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano and Frankfurt’s Evan N’Dicka are also firmly on the Gunners’ radar.
