Posted by

Tottenham are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.

The 30-year-old has had a pretty good season with Roma so far. Smalling has featured in 24 matches for the Giallorossi, scoring two goals against Udinese and Brescia while providing an assist.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport, Tottenham and Everton are both interested in signing the centre-back and have had interactions with his agent and Man United. This report also claims that the Red Devils have set his asking price at €20 million.

Smalling has impressed for Roma during his loan spell so far and it might keep him in contention for a place in England’s squad for the Euros. The Serie A side themselves may want to sign him on a permanent basis in the summer.

Tottenham might be looking for some defensive reinforcements in the summer especially if Jan Vertonghen leaves. Smalling would be a decent addition to Jose Mourinho’s squad and there’s every chance of him getting a place in the playing XI alongside either of Toby Alderweireld or Davinson Sanchez.
