According to Italian news agency Ansa, three men broke into the home of the Roma defender after removing a grating from the window of the players bedroom.


Whilst at gunpoint, Smalling was asked to open the safe, where three Rolex watches, jewellery and €300 in cash was taken.


Throughout the robbery, the former Manchester United player's family was present, with his wife calling the police at around 5am.


The police have now taken to examine the video surveillance cameras, to work out what has happened at the property.


His former Manchester United team-mate, Marcus Rashford commented online saying: "Thinking about you @ChrisSmalling and your lovely family. So sorry to wake up to the news this morning. Can’t imagine how you’re feeling but I hope you’re ok."


Roma coach Paul Fonseca's house was broken into last November whilst he and his family were out where some of his valuables were stolen.
