Report: Tottenham have now opened talks with Conte's 'dream signing', could cost £42m+

According to 90Min, Tottenham have entered into initial talks over a deal to bring Roma midfielder, Nicolo Zaniolo, to the Premier League.

Zaniolo is one of Roma’s best players but there have been consistent murmurs in recent windows that his future might well lie away from the Italian capital. Indeed, Newcastle United are also thought to have expressed a keen interest on bringing him to England.

However, 90Min has built on reports from overnight which suggested that Fabio Paratici had made a trip to Rome to discuss transfers. Their report now claims that Tottenham have indeed held talks with Roma about signing Zaniolo, who could be open to a move away.

As reported on TBR previously, Zaniolo has been considered to be Antonio Conte’s dream signing. Roma are thought to want around £42m to even consider selling their star midfielder. The Italian is comfortable in a number of positions in midfielder, including as a number ten and forward if needed.

Should Tottenham do a deal for Zaniolo, it would take their summer incomings to four. Fabio Paratici has already got deals over the line for Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic, and Fraser Forster.

TBR’s View: Zaniolo Can Bring Class To Tottenham

Nicolo Zaniolo is a quality operator and it’s easy to see why Antonio Conte admires him so much. His ability to float into any midfield position makes him an attractive proposition as well.

For Conte, it’s now about getting players in who are going to actively improve either the first XI or those who’ll be used regularly from the bench. Zaniolo certainly does that for Conte, and at £42m, you have to say he looks a bargain as well.

Tottenham will spend more money this summer, it’s just a case of on who. If it is Zaniolo, then few will have complaints in North London.
