According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arab clubs are showing interest Two stars of AS Roma include midfielder Chris Smalling and striker Paulo Dybala.
Former Manchester United star Smalling is 33 years old this year and has spent 5 seasons with the Giallorossi. It is likely that the English player will be attracted by the huge income coming from Saudi Arabia in the final stages of his career. This means that AS Roma will need to participate in the upcoming transfer market to find another midfielder to replace if Smalling leaves.
In addition, World Cup champion Dybala is also a transfer target of Arab clubs and Gazzetta also mentioned that the Argentine striker’s contract release clause is only 12 million euros, a figure clearly within the capabilities of the Saudi Pro League.
In the new season, AS Roma club is ranked 7th on the Serie A rankings with 18 points after 12 matches, 3 points behind the group that will qualify for the Champions League next year. This achievement was greatly contributed by striker Paulo Dybala, who had 2 goals and 3 assists after 8 appearances. Former England midfielder Smalling is in the process of recovering from an injury he suffered in a 2-2 draw against Milan at the beginning of the season.
