Roma waiting for Smalling, also eyeing Diogo Dalot

John Solano

The next 48 hours will be critical for Roma’s transfer market.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Giallorossi are waiting on an answer from Manchester United after they submitted a new offer today for defender Chris Smalling — the intermediary for the deal will arrive in the Italian capital on Friday to try and unlock the deal as Roma remain confident in landing the 30 year-old.

The Englishman remains the top priority for the club, but they are also considering a reunion with Antonio Rüdiger of Chelsea. The German international would arrive on loan and is the first alternative to Smalling if a deal cannot be reached.

Meanwhile, Roma are also interested in another Manchester United player: fullback Diogo Dalot.

Milan are also interested in the 21 year-old Portuguese defender and will make a new offer for him after having their first one refused by the Red Devils. The Giallorossi will propose a loan deal for the player.
