Arsenal are preparing a move for Manchester United defenders Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans.
The Gunners are targeting the duo after being rebuffed by Dynamo Kiev in their pursuit of Austrian Aleksandar Dragovic.
The pair may be seen as surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, as manager Louis van Gaal is expected to oversee a summer overhaul as he bids to overturn United’s fortunes.
Northern Ireland international Evans has spent his entire career at the Red Devils, apart from loan spells at Royal Antwerp and Sunderland.
Smalling arrived at United in 2010 from Fulham, and has fifteen caps for England.
