Juventus are reportedly monitoring Roma defender Chris Smalling ahead of his free agency in the summer.

The Englishman’s contract with Roma is bound to expire in June unless he chooses to extend his stay after collecting 50% of his season appearances.

According to Sky Sport, Inter are interested in the ex-Man United player. Moreover, Juventus have joined the race and contacted Smalling’s entourage.

Roma, on the other hand, want to keep Smalling and are willing to advance a two-year proposal with a slightly lower salary than the current €3.5 million the player earns.
