Earlier this week, Arsenal were sensationally linked with a £12m summer bid for Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling.
The rumour has not impressed Gunners fans, who took to Twitter to express their utter disgust at such a suggestion.
We have rounded up the best pieces of reaction, right here. Some are rather unpleasant…
If we sign Chris Smalling, I’ll staple my testicles to my desk at work.

Switching to Tottenham if we sign Smalling.

Why on earth would we sign Smalling? We don’t need defensive cover as such & if we were to sign a CB, surely it would be a world class one..
