Tottenham have been linked with a move for Roma prospect Nicolo Zaniolo and their fans have been reacting on Twitter.
According to Corriere della Sera, Spurs are in a race with Juventus and Inter Milan to land the youngster.
The 21-year-old has scored seven goals and registered two assists during 2019/20 but could be on his way out of Roma.
It has been claimed in the reports that boss Paulo Fonseca hasn’t been too pleased with his performances and could offload the player.
Tottenham would seemingly need to stump up some serious cash, however. It has been suggested that Roma value their man at £50 million.
Given Daniel Levy’s history in the market, it could make Zaniolo to Spurs a longshot but nonetheless it would appear there is interest.
Jose Mourinho will want to strengthen his squad in the summer as he prepares for his first full season in charge.
The Portuguese boss won’t be in the Champions League and a return to Europe’s elite club competition will be the aim.
Zaniolo could certainly help achieve those goals but some fans remain unconvinced by this.
Some rate the youngster as a player but hold doubts for one reason or another.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Tottenham fans on the links to a move for Zaniolo.
Would be a big gamble since he did his ACL and hasn’t got the most proffesional attitude, but i only can see this happening if Alli leaves

Zaniolo is a top prospect. Just back from an ACL injury so need to see how he recovers, but he can play on the right or in the no. 10 role so can put pressure on Lucas and Dele for their places. The sort of competition for places needed at Spurs

We do need him, he'll be the closest thing to Eriksen. I'd sell Alli for the funds to buy Zaniolo or do a swap for Zaniolo.

This would be a good signing. Sell lamela to get some of the funds back. Hes only 21 years old with bags of potential.
