Arsenal News HQ brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the world.
Arsenal will sign Chris Smalling from Manchester United this summer, according to Steve Nicol.
The Liverpool legend believes the Gunners need a centre-back and thinks Smalling will move to the Emirates.
“I see this happening, because Arsenal need centre-backs,” he said on ESPN FC.
“They’ve got some injury problems, even though we are still way, way short of the season starting.
“I think Smalling will end up at Arsenal.”
In my own opinion, Smalling is not considered a target for Arsene Wenger this summer and Mourinho would surely not agree to sell to a direct rival, let alone to Wenger.
This claim by the Liverpool legend holds no weight, and is sure to go away with the rest of the countless and unfounded transfer rumours flooding our headlines lately.
