Chris Smalling willing to extend Roma stay despite interest from Juventus and Inter Milan

Roma table renewal offer for Smalling amid Inter interest

Chris Smalling is reportedly willing to extend his stay at Roma despite interest from several Premier League clubs (via inews).

The 33-year-old joined the Serie A club from Manchester United in 2019, initially on loan before making the move permanent.

He has been a key member of the Roma team in the last few years, making 130 senior appearances.

The former England international would have been a free agent in the summer, but he is ready to pen a new two-year deal.

This will be disappointing news for Juventus, Inter Milan and several Premier League sides who are keen on him. 

Smalling has been exceptional this season, featuring in 39 matches in all competitions and making four goal contributions. 

He has also averaged 0.8 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 4.1 clearances and 1.1 blocks per game in Serie A (as per WhoScored). 

Roma are in a great position to secure Champions League football for next season. 

Collecting 53 points from 29 matches, they are third in the table ahead of the two Milan clubs. 

They have also been impressive in the Europa League and could lift the trophy under serial winner Jose Mourinho. 

La Lupa sealed a 2-0 aggregate win over Real Sociedad in the round of 16 to earn a place in the quarter-finals, where they will meet Feyenoord.
