English defender Chris Smalling is reportedly edging closer to an extension with Roma after much speculation regarding his future as a free agent.
According to the latest report by Corriere dello Sport, Inter are no longer interested in the veteran centreback. The Nerazzurri want to prioritize younger players for the upcoming summer window and therefore Smalling does not fit their plans anymore.
As a result, the only viable solution remains a return to the Premier League, with Smalling expected to draw some interest in the summer.
However, the Italian newspaper claims that, at this moment in time, Smalling is closer to signing a new long term deal with Roma.
