Arsenal are ramping up their interest in Chris Smalling and are trying to snatch his signature from under the noses of Roma, where he is currently on loan.

After a difficult season at Manchester United, Smalling has recaptured his best form with Roma in Serie A and has been linked with a permanent move to the Italian side.

But other clubs have been alerted to Smalling's impressive displays and according to Corriere dello Sport, Arsenal could make a move for the 30-year-old.
