Tottenham are reportedly interested in the signing of Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling.

The 30-year-old defender has had a pretty good season with Roma so far. Chris Smalling has featured in 24 games for the Giallorossi, scoring two goals versus Brescia and Udinese while providing an assist.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport, Everton and Tottenham are both interested in signing the centre-back and have had interactions with his agent and Manchester United. This report also claims that the Red Devils have set his asking price at €20 million.

Chris Smalling has impressed for Roma during his loan time so far, and it might keep him in contention for a place in England’s squad for the Euros. The Serie A side themselves may want to sign him permanently in the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur might be looking for some defensive reinforcements in the summer especially if Jan Vertonghen leaves. Chris Smalling would be a decent addition to Jose Mourinho’s line-up, and there’s every chance of him getting a place in the playing line-up alongside either of Davinson Sanchez or Toby Alderweireld.
