Arsenal hit with HANDS OFF warning over defender transfer target

As the Arsenal and England striker was scoring the two international goals that gave the Man United and England captain a win over Slovenia to celebrate on the occasion of his 100th cap, Wayne Rooney’s club fans may well have been wondering once more why Louis van Gaal allowed Arsenal and Arsene Wenger to snap up the England star for a bargain price during the summer transfer window.

And it seems that the Dutchman is determined not to let the same thing happen again in the January transfer window, according to a report in the Daily Star. Van Gaal has apparently decided that there is no way he will let the Gunners complete their expected transfer bid for the United and England defender Chris Smalling.
