Report: Tottenham dream of Zaniolo signing; Roma open to sale

Tottenham Hotspur dream of deploying Nicolo Zaniolo behind Harry Kane, with Sky Italia reporting that Roma could be open to selling the 22-year-old.

The Giallorossi would ideally like to keep the Italy international. However, Jose Mourinho’s men are aware that Zaniolo is one of the players who could command a significant fee.

Therefore, Roma selling the attacking midfielder is no longer out of the question. He is out of contract in the Italian capital in 2024. So his deal may reach a precarious stage this summer should he not agree an extension.

Sky Italia suggests that both Juventus and AC Milan are interested in Zaniolo and considering a move for the youngster. But the report also claims that Tottenham remain in the running.

In fact, Tottenham reportedly dream of using Zaniolo behind Kane. It is suggested however, that Zaniolo moving abroad is currently seen as being less likely.

Zaniolo could be an inspired signing should Tottenham target get back on track after torrid time

Zaniolo has been a stalwart of the Roma side this season. However, he went into this campaign having not made one appearance last term. He had suffered his second serious cruciate ligament injury.

It is remarkable that he is back playing at such a high level. He has four goals and five assists in all competitions this season. But clearly, it could be a risk to sign Zaniolo.

Reports claimed Tottenham needed to pay £33.5 million to sign him ahead of the January window. And Roma are surely likely to want a similar amount this summer.

Daniele De Rossi previously labelled him ‘incredible‘. And he lauded his technical quality. If he can stay fit, he could be a huge talent.

Interestingly, Roma are now no longer against a sale. And Tottenham deem him to be a dream signing.
