According to the Express, Wenger was originally looking at Aleksandar Dragovic from Dynamo Kiev, but initial discussions have not been productive and he is now looking closer to home.
The Gunners have supposedly already held talks with Van Gaal and the United hierarchy, and the Old Trafford power-brokers are willing to do a deal. It is thought the pair could cost Arsenal as little as £12 million, as van Gaal does not see a future for either of them at the club and the club want them removed from the wage bill ASAP.
27-year-old Evans has spent his whole career at Old Trafford so far after making his debut in 2006, while Smalling was bought from Fulham in a £7 million deal in 2010.
