Roma Keen on Chelsea and Tottenham Defensive Outcasts

With Chris Smalling facing an uncertain timetable, Roma will likely turn to the transfer market in January and are considering three names in particular in the early stages of their search: Trevoh Chalobah, Eric Dier, and Oumar Solet, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Chelsea misfit has been linked with a Serie A move a few times in the past. He’s bound to depart in January. He has yet to play this season since he has fallen out of favor and due to a lingering thigh injury. Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich could be in the running for his services.

Roma have a tight relationship with Chelsea, which could help their attempt for Chalobah, while Solet and Dier might be more challenging to sign. The youngster has a year and a half left on his contract with RB Salzburg, which always set robust price tags.

The Englishman was one of their early targets once Smalling first started dealing with the injury. He has already worked with José Mourinho in the past. He too has struggled mightily to find game time so far.

The Giallorossi must navigate constraining Financial Fair Play limitations and need favorable conditions for a deal to go through.

Our Take on Roma, Dier, Chalobah, and Solet

They have some leeway regarding the position of the newcomer in their back-three thanks to Diego Llorente’s versatility. A plug-and-play option is more recommendable.
