After falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho, Smalling made only 36 appearances in all competitions last season, 20 less than the season prior, and as a result the 27-year-old is reportedly prepared to take his football elsewhere.
Mourinho is also ready to offer Dier the chance to establish himself as a holding midfielder at Old Trafford so the lure of playing in his preferred position will be a tempting prospect for him.
However, West Brom and Leicester are unlikely to be Smalling's only potential suitors, as Tottenham are also reported to have interest in the centre back, along with a number of Premier League clubs. He may not be the most glamorous of signings, but the England global is a ready-made player that could provide strong competition at Spurs.
