Tottenham enter new discussions to sign Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo
August 2, 2022
Tottenham Hotspur have set new discussions with AS Roma for the future of Nicolo Zaniolo, According to Foot Mercato’s Santi Aouna.
Spurs have long been linked with a move to sign Zaniolo from Roma, and those rumors have intensified over the last few weeks. The 23-year-old joined Roma from Inter in 2018, with his contract expiring in 2024. The young Italian attacker has scored 28 goals for the Giallorossi in a total of 111 appearances.
Zaniolo is a versatile player. He can play as a winger, attacking midfielder and as a second striker, and on occasions appearing in central midfield. Poland great Zbigniew Boniek recently claimed that Zaniolo has the potential to become an even better striker than Dusan Vlahovic.
A french journalist confirmed that new discussions are taking place for Zaniolo. However, it remains to be seen how the discussion goes between the two sides. The 23-year-old is not in Mourinho’s plan for Roma-with Pellegrini taking up the role of supporting Tammy Abraham and Dybala in attack.
Spurs director Paratici, who has been a fan of the midfielder for years now, is set to hold talks over a potential move. And Conte already signed a versatile forward, Dejan Kulusevski from Serie A, and he has turned out to be a hit. We would hope that Zaniolo is the same, if Spurs could complete his move this summer.
