The 20-year-old has been linked with several Premier League clubs this summer, but Crystal Palace have emerged as front-runners for his signature.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for Lyon’s £45m-rated midfielder Aouar. Recent reports say Arsenal are now ‘convinced’ they will bring the Frenchman to the Emirates. Granit Xhaka, Dani Ceballos and Mohamed Elneny are Arteta’s only midfield options at the moment.

His future at Manchester United seems to be in doubt as he was left out the squad which lost to Crystal Palace on Saturday. Last week, Roma boss Paulo Fonseca revealed Smalling wants to return to Italy. He said: “I am in regular contact with Chris Smalling, I spoke to him yesterday. “He wants to come back to Roma and we want to have him back. I think that there could be an update over the next few days.” Getty Images – Getty Smalling has two years left on his Manchester United contract,
