According to the La Repubblica newspaper, the club have been hard at work behind the scenes to get the pair to extend their stay at the club.

The report suggests that  Skriniar has already signed an agreement recently, extending his contract which currently expires in June 2023.

The club are keen for de Vrij to also extend his contract at the club which expires at the same time, as they look to keep some stability in their defensive back-line.

Since then he has not missed many games for the club scoring four goals in 97 Serie A appearances in his three seasons to date.
