Roma, Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan are reportedly all keen on Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling ahead of the summer transfer window.

Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling is reportedly wanted by four Serie A clubs following his performances for Roma this season.

The England international has played a key role in the heart of the Roma defence during his loan spell with Paulo Fonseca's side this term, making 28 top-flight appearances for the Serie A outfit and registering two goals and two assists.

Roma are reportedly keen to strike a permanent deal for Smalling, but I Giallorossi are likely to miss out on Champions League qualification unless they can achieve Europa League glory in August.

Roma's financial struggles are said to be hindering negotiations between the two clubs, with Calciomercato claiming that United are holding out for a fee of £18.2m while Roma are refusing to shell out more than £16.3m.

As a result, Juventus, Napoli and Inter Milan are all said to be keeping a close eye on developments and are ready to engage in a bidding war for Smalling should Roma fail to agree a deal with Man United.

The 30-year-old's current contract at Old Trafford is set to expire at the end of the 2021-22 season.
