Four Premier League clubs want Manchester United defender


Chris Smalling news

Smalling wanted by four EPL clubs

Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling is reportedly the subject of interest from four Premier League sides this summer.

The England international has recently returned to the club after a temporary stint at AS Roma, where he impressed in his 37 appearances.

The Serie A outfit have sought to sign him on a permanent deal, but they have been put off by the non-negotiable £20m asking price.

This has raised the possibility of Smalling joining another English club and 90min claims that a number of teams are interested in landing him.

Newcastle United, Everton and West Ham United are prepared to meet his valuation while former club Fulham are also in the running to sign him.

Smalling has yet to make a decision over his future and he is waiting to see whether Roma are prepared to make a fresh bid after their recent takeover.

Manchester United have yet to make a signing in the transfer window and they could prefer to sanction Smalling's sale at the earliest to boost their transfer kitty.
