Tottenham transfer news: Sky Sport Italia share interesting Nicolo Zaniolo update

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly in pursuit of Roma’s Nicolo Zaniolo.

And recent speculation has suggested that Spurs are heading in the right direction for his signing.

A report from Sport Mediaset today claimed that Zaniolo has effectively said ‘yes’ to joining Tottenham.

Obviously that’s just player-side. Spurs and Roma will need to come to an agreement over the fee.

However, Sky Sport Italia has shared an update that bodes well for Spurs in their pursuit of the Italian.

They claim that Roma have left Zaniolo out for this weekend’s Serie A meeting with Spezia.

This suggests they don’t want to risk him as they look to thrash out an agreement with Tottenham.

Back to the fee, Sky Sport Italia say Roma want €40m, either permanently or on loan with an obligation to buy.

Meanwhile, Tottenham reportedly want either a loan with option to buy or conditional based on Champions League qualification.

These conditions aren’t to Roma’s liking, according to the report.

So with that in mind, Spurs and the Giallorossi will need to come to an agreement. So there’s no big breakthrough there just yet.

However, with Zaniolo reportedly out of contention this weekend, it looks as though Roma are already preparing for life without him.

Tottenham have been looking for attacking reinforcements, and it looks as though they’re on track for Zaniolo.

The Italy international is a talented and versatile player who has plenty of years ahead of him.

Zaniolo would be a good shout for Tottenham, who certainly need more quality in their squad.
