Report: Arsenal ask for information for Tottenham target Zaniolo

Arsenal have now asked for information on Nicolo Zaniolo with the Gunners considering trying to sign the Tottenham Hotspur target in the summer, according to a report from Roma Giallorossa.

Zaniolo continues to be heavily linked with a number of Premier League sides. Spurs have probably been the club mentioned most often alongside the Roma maestro.

Corriere Dello Sport reported earlier this year that Antonio Conte dreams of using Zaniolo alongside Harry Kane. In fact, the same outlet suggested in the summer that Zaniolo had his bags packed ahead of a potential move to North London.

Roma Giallorossa reports that Spurs remain in the race, alongside Manchester United. However, Arsenal are also admirers. And the Gunners have even taken steps in preparation for a possible push to sign the 23-year-old.

The report claims that Mikel Arteta’s men have asked for information on Zaniolo ahead of a potential bid. It appears that they are unlikely to make their move in January. Instead, they are keen ahead of the summer.

Roma are attempting to agree a new contract with Zaniolo. They are willing to offer the Italy international a deal worth €4 million per year. But Zaniolo is looking for around €4.5 million, which works out at about £75,000-a-week.

Roma fans have not seen the best of Zaniolo so far this season. He has only managed one goal so far. However, he looks to be an extremely talented player with a lot of potential to improve further. Daniele De Rossi claimed that he is ‘incredible‘.

FBRef compares Zaniolo with Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling and even Son Heung-min. Few attacking midfielders manage a greater number of attempts on goal than the youngster.

For a long time, it appeared that Tottenham may be the club who succeeds if anyone was going to bring him to England.

But perhaps, it may end up being Arsenal who land his signature.
