Report: Tottenham hope to move closer to signing Zaniolo this weekend
Tottenham Hotspur hope to move closer to signing Nicolo Zaniolo this weekend, with Tuttosport reporting that Fabio Paratici will meet with Tiago Pinto to discuss the 23-year-old when Spurs face Roma on Saturday.
Antonio Conte’s men round off their pre-season campaign this weekend. They face the Giallorossi in Israel. Of course, the game will be significant as it sees Tottenham take on Jose Mourinho.
But it may also be significant as it could see Zaniolo come up against Spurs. Reports have previously suggested that Conte dreams of having the Italy international in his ranks.
Tottenham have already made a £30 million bid. And it was claimed that they could soon make another offer.
They do face hurdles. Juventus also want Zaniolo. And Tuttosport reports that he would like to stay in Italy should he leave the capital this summer.
But it seems that Tottenham will soon have a better idea of whether Zaniolo is going to end the window in North London.
Tuttosport reports that Spurs director Paratici will meet his counterpart in Haifa this weekend. And the two will attempt to see if they can approach an agreement for Zaniolo.
Of course, reaching a deal may be beyond the two this time around. However, it could prove to be an important meeting.
Tottenham hope to move closer to Zaniolo signing
Tottenham could be in a strong position when it comes to signing Zaniolo. You would imagine that many at Roma would rather sell him to a Premier League club than Juventus.
Zaniolo is an ‘incredible‘ talent. And it would be painful for many attached to the Giallorossi to see him play for the Old Lady.
But obviously, much will depend on the money on the table. His asking price could be around £42.5 million.
It may soon become apparent just how close Tottenham are prepared to go to that asking price.
