Roma defender Chris Smalling aiming to be available after international break

Roma defender Chris Smalling aims to be back and available for selection after the international break.

He has been battling a flexor injury for a month.

Smalling has been struggling with the injury and has been visiting London for consultation.

La Gazzetta dello Sport says the 31-year-old, who has only played 20 Serie A games since moving on a permanent deal to the Italian capital in 2020, aims to be back in action against Genoa this month.

Roma have only one win in the last seven games across all competitions.
