Its the second time in recent weeks that the Italian media has suggested the midfielder has suffered a setback. Strootman firmly denied the first story, but has not confirmed or denied Gazetta dello Sport’s article yet.

Strootman tore a ligament in his knee back in April 2014 and missed the World Cup last summer, with every recovery since being ruined by a new batch of surgery. In two years with Roma, Strootman has been restricted to 31 appearances.
