Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly identified Roma centre-back Chris Smalling as a potential summer signing.
The 33-year-old defender has been a key figure at the heart of the defence since joining the Giallorossi from Manchester United in 2020. He has made 117 appearances for the club.
Although the centre-back has started 19 of Roma’s 21 matches this season, his current contract is due to expire at the end of the season.
While Smalling is reportedly keen to remain with the Italian outfit, it remains uncertain whether Roma will offer him a new contract, with the Englishman believed to be asking for an improved two-year deal.
According to Sky in Italy, Spurs are considering a move for Smalling, as manager Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his defence.
If Smalling chooses to leave Roma then Tottenham could face competition for his signature, with Inter Milan and Juventus both credited wit an interest in the experienced defender.
