Arsenal favourites for double raid – FULL STORY

According to bookies Ladbrokes, Arsenal are the favourites to sign both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the summer transfer window.

Both players face doubts over their futures at Old Trafford after some unconvincing recent displays and with United linked with new defenders in the transfer market.

Smalling was first targeted by Arsenal in January while Jones is now also emerging as a target for the Gunners as they look to improve on some unconvincing defensive options of their own.

The Ivorian is a similar style of player to Pogba and could be an ideal replacement for him at Old Trafford.

United can also land Seri for just £35million this summer due to a clause in his contract, though the likes of Manchester City have also been linked with him.
