The United boss has already rejected Arsenalapproach last summer and is likely to do the same in the coming transfer window. LVG believes that he is now starting to show his potential.
Last summer, United were keen for Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen prior to his move to Barcelona. But Wenger wanted to include Smalling in Vermaelen’s deal which was rejected by the Red Devils.
Manchester Unitedsigned him from Fulham for a 10 million pound deal back in 2010. But the player has been inconsistent due to injuries.
Smalling has been an important player for Red Devils in the recent games but they are still looking for a fine centre-back for next season. They have been linked with Paris Saint Germain’s Marquinhos, Valencia’s Nicolas Otamendi and Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels for the summer move.
